In a recent interview with Sky Sports, Alisha shared her humble beginnings in Tagertschi, a quaint town on the outskirts of Bern, Switzerland. Reflecting on her journey, she expressed how far she has come from her country village upbringing.
“We just played street football all day. When a car came, we shouted: ‘Car! Move!’ It was so normal. Now it’s a bit different! This makes me so humble because I can always think about this moment. There is a difference now, I live in a big city. But I never forget it,” she reminisced.
