I began playing soccer at the age of 4 and have played club soccer even since I was 6. The sport has been an influential part of my life ever since I was young, and because of it, I have become a leader, learned to deal with others, how to balance my busy schedule and many other things. I have become a determined, passionate, and committed athlete, and developed an appreciation for teamwork and ssacrifice. In addition to this, I have developed great time management, for I have to juggle practices and games with a heavy academic load. I attend one of the best schools in the country, Ransom Everglades, take difficult classes and am a member of student government. As a sophomore playing my first year of high school soccer, I started most games on varsity at left or right back. I believe that I not only have the skills required of a college soccer player but am a strong academic candidate and have the qualities to make an impact on any college roster.
