HERENTALS Queens forward, Praynance Zvawanda says she is finding solace in getting her first Mighty Warriors call up.
It’s been a month of mixed fortunes for Zvawanda, who lost her mother on September 7.
Zvawanda has been picked for the Mighty Warriors squad which will represent the country in the Women’s COSAFA Cup set for South Africa early next month.
They are expected to troop into camp today.
This annual regional tournament will get underway from October 4 to 15.
They are in Group C were they are expected to face Namibia, Lesotho and Botswana.
The 20-year-old is also the Women’s Super League reigning Player of the Season after propelling the Students to their maiden championship last season.
“This is a big moment for me and for everyone who has been encouraging me to push to the edge.
“I really struggled to process the pain after the passing of my mother, and I can say that I’m still recovering but this recognition has helped to heal the process in a way.
“There are many people who have been comforting me.”
