The West Sydney local will become the first woman of Lebanese descent to play in the competition.

She will pull on the charcoal and orange for the GWS Giants. as she steps out against the Brisbane Lions this weekend. 

It has been a well-earned debut after she didn't play a game in 2018 as a rookie and was delisted at the end of the season. 

"She's had a fabulous preparation," coach Alan McConnell said.

"She's done it pretty hard - I delisted her on the end of last year and she's had to earn her spot back on the list and had a great pre-season, so she'll make her debut."

In a video posted by the Giants on Thursday afternoon, Zreika can be seen fidgiting in her chair while waiting for McConnell to tell her news. 

Tears started to flow when he said those two words "you're in". 

"Thanks Alan. You don't know what it means," Zreika said.

"I have no words to tell you how much it actually means."

The 19-year-old won't be the only player making their AFLW debut with Alyce Parker and Gaelic football star Yvonne Bonner also gearing up.

The Giants face the Lions on Sunday (February 3) at Moreton Bay Central Sports Complex from 4:05pm AEST.
