She called also all the women spectators to give each women a flower to celebrate the World's Day. "We need as women here to proof that we are a valuable part of the sport as women first and also as mothers who can do a lot for the sport with our children," Aarab said. "I want to thank all the women present here for their great role in volleyball and I want them to do more. They have to accompany their children to volleyball halls and to follow them in training because we are the real future of the sport," she added.
