Penguin presents the audio edition of They Don't Teach This, written and read by Eniola Aluko.
First class honours law degree. One hundred and two appearances for England women’s national football team. First female pundit on Match of the Day. UN Women UK ambassador. Guardian columnist.
All of these achievements belong to Eni Aluko, who, with her memoir, They Don't Teach This, is keen to share her experiences, aiming to inspire listeners to be the best possible versions of themselves. Aluko was appointed UN Women UK ambassador with a focus on promoting gender empowerment in 2016, and in October 2018 she was named by Marie Claire as one of 10 Future Shapers Award Winners, recognising individuals who are changing women’s futures for the better. She is currently playing football for Juventus in Italy and writing a weekly column for The Guardian.
They Don’t Teach This steps beyond the realms of memoir to explore themes of dual nationality and identity, race and institutional prejudice, success, failure and faith. It is an inspiring manifesto to change the way listeners and the future generation choose to view the challenges that come in their life applying life lessons with raw truths of Eni’s own personal experience.
