PokerStars Women's Rebekah Mercer recently talked to Team PokerStars Pro Fatima de Melo about everything from poker to her other careers, like field hockey and singing.

An excerpt:

PSW: What do you enjoy most about poker?

Fatima: I enjoy the fact that there's so much to learn. The skills and tactics involved are the most interesting part for me. And I'm very competitive of course, and I enjoy that part of it as well. But poker can be very creative too, and I enjoy a lot of creative pursuits, so that fits perfectly for me. I have to have something in my life that is creative and competitive to get fulfillment in life.

PSW: When did you get really serious about poker?

Fatima: It was in 2009. When PokerStars came calling, it was perfect because I was ready to quit field hockey. It was something challenging and fun to learn, and there is always so much to learn in poker.
