 Esteban Dardani 

Esteban grew up in Stratham, New Hampshire, but lived abroad for periods of time in places such as Chile, Spain, and Canada. He recently graduated from Colgate University where he majored in Anthropology, played in a band, and enjoyed stints of living out of his backpack while studying abroad in Europe. Esteban played club and intramural soccer while at Colgate, several 8v8 teams over the summers, and remembers his high school varsity soccer days fondly.  

For four years Esteban also led student trips throughout the Adirondack State Park with Colgate University’s Outdoor Education program. He developed a keen ability for leadership and loves taking student groups hiking. He also spent a summer interning for The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell, Massachusetts as a music teacher.


Esteban has always had a passion for soccer because it follows him wherever he goes. Esteban enjoyed leading for Woza because he remembers his past experiences using soccer as a way to build community and better understand the cultures around him.
