My name is Christiano da Motta and I am currently a Senior at Oaks Christian High School. I have been playing soccer for as long as I can remember. It has truly been my goal my entire life to play at the collegiate level. I know at the collegiate level we are all talented, but where I believe I am different is something that is difficult to coach. At a very young age I was taught that their will always be someone more talented then you, but the one thing I could always do better than everyone else was be the hardest worker. This is not only on the field, but in everything I do in life. Recently, in school I was given the Top Scholar award. This award is normally given to a student that has achieved academic excellence, but in my case it was awarded to me for my hard work, persistence, and drive to improve as a student. I believe with my abilities, work ethic, and leadership skills I can help any team succeed.
