When Romelda Aiken takes the court against the Collingwood Magpies for her 150th National League appearance she will not only be playing for herself and her team but her granddad too.
It is a big milestone for any player particular Aiken who has played all 150 games with the Queensland Firebirds, having spent a decade with the team in purple.
When asked if she thought when she arrived at the club if she would have reached this milestone she had a simple answer
For Aiken, it was always about the journey and the story she was going to build with her time in Australia.
"For me, it was just to focus on my game and how I build my story," she said.
"I'm grateful for the opportunity Netball Queensland and the Firebirds did offer me."
And despite winning three ANZ Championships including an undfeated season in 2011, Aiken says they are all highlights even the low points she has had.
"I think every story stands out for itself," she said.
"There's been a lot of highs and a lot of lows, I can't pinpoint anything in particular because I think that is the reason why my story is what it is."
But the match on Sunday afternoon will also be in remembrance of her granddad who passed away on Monday.
"I myself will be playing in honour of my granddad," Aiken said.
"I will be wearing something in honour of him," she said.
He was her best friend and a big part of her life, even when she moved out to Australia from her home in Jamaica as a fresh-faced 19-year-old.
He was always saying he was going to come out and watch her play but was unable too but for Aiken, she will remember everything he taught her espiecally about how to live.
"He pretty much told us how to live a creative lifestyle; take chances and love what we do and don't worry about the outcome," she said.
"He did his job and we learnt so much from him."
