Striving for excellence has always been my goal, and is a mantra I use to guide my daily life. Soccer is a big part of who I am and striving for excellence on the field has helped me grow into more than just a player. I have learned the value of persistence, commitment, team work, passion, creativity and hard work. These are attributes I have gained while playing soccer for many years and apply them to my life on and off the field. My future as a collegiate player will be a privilege that I will not take for granted. I will strive to be the smartest and hardest working student-athlete on the pitch as well as in the classroom.
