19-year-old athlete Misha Dawood was on her way to the sixth annual National Women's Football Championship in Islamabad when she became one of 152 people killed in that Airblue plane crash in Pakistan last week. Dawood was a sophomore at U.C. Berkeley, a member of the Diya Football Club, and a member of the light crew team. Despite studying abroad in the U.S., Misha had flown back to Pakistan to help her team win the championship. The team would go on to win on Thursday, and dedicated its victory to Misha.
Misha had been planning to travel with her family this summer but decided at the last minute to go join her team for the championship. [NBC Bay Area]
