I have been playing soccer since I was 5, soccer is a great part of my life and is something I take very seriously and put a lot of effort and sacrifice into. I have not always been on teams that do well and no matter what team I have been on, I have gained a lot of knowledge and my work ethic has grown. Through my soccer and academic career I have had many challenges and no matter how big they are I have always managed to overcome them. I am a very disciplined, humble, and positive person on and off the pitch. I take my school and sport very seriously and am very dedicated to both. I aspire to be the first in my family to go to college and to also play soccer at the college level. It is very important to me to be the first to lead by example for my family and others who look up to me so show that anything is possible and with hard work and dedication it is in reach.
