Jennifer also posts pictures of her parents on her social media every now and then to express how grateful she is toward them and their unwavering support.
“I remember when my father, Rafael and I stayed in the car waiting for her because it was so cold. He has gone out of his way to her, rain, snow or heat. She has spent thousands of hours on the road. My Sister Jenni’s success is yours too,” said Silvia Hermoso (Jennifer’s sister) in an interview.
“On the other hand, my mother, Soledad, has accompanied her everywhere. The family has always been supporting her. We knew and we know, that soccer is her life,” her sister said.
