Sonja Missio

Condemned as an Udinese supporter since birth, my love-hate relationship with the Little Zebras has turned me into a masochist. Or a megalomaniac, depending on the day. As a half-Friulano, quarter-Swiss, quarter-Filipina, living in Toronto, my soccer enthusiasm has been (for the most part) doomed and (at best) confusing. In my spare time, I am running a (un)successful campaign to become the next FIFA President. You can follow me on twitter: @sonjamissio
