As one of the rising stars of women's football in Latin America and the joint Golden Boot winner at the FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup Costa Rica 2014, Deyna is currently studying journalism at Florida State University, where she plays as a forward for the university women's team, in addition to playing an important role in the Venezuela national women's team.

Regarded by many as a strong role model for young girls, the nominee for Best FIFA Women's Player and FIFA Puskas awardswas chosen to take over the @FIFAWWC account during the FIFA World Cup Russia as she represents the new generation of female footballers and utilises her strong social media presence to inspire and encourage girls to play football and #daretoshine.

Followers of @FIFAWWC can expect to see many surprises on the official Twitter account of the FIFA Women's World Cup. Deyna will meet with special VIPs in Moscow, dare some well-known footballers to shine, talk to football fans at matches, check out some of the FIFA World Cup pitches, maybe even have a kick-about with some surprise guests, and much, much more.
