Paloma had her first ball at age nine and since then does not separate from it, until she has become the pioneer of freestyle football in Spain. She was born in Mexico in 1986 and when she was a child she had to impersonate a boy to play football in her home country, since there were no womens teams.

Once in Spain, she was finally able to be herself again and joined a team of futsal girls, although she failed to stand out. As she did it was with the footbag, a sports modality in which a small cloth ball of 50 grams filled with steel balls is hit, in which she has already been several times World champion, the first of them in 2015. But later she realized that with the ball she suffered fewer injuries and could go further.

Since then she has performed in the Wanda Metropolitano stadium in the attendance record match with 60,739 spectators, in the final of the Queens Cup 2019, she has starred in TV spots of La Liga and even got a role in the play ‘Los Futbolísimos. The Musical’ by Roberto Santiago in which she plays the panther of Moratalaz.

In addition to continue opening the way for many other women in his specialty, Paloma makes performances with the ball for all kind of events, with an increasingly wide repertoire that has been joined by artists from different fields such as violinist Sebastian Petruchelli or rapper Eskarnia.
