I hope you are having a good day! My name is Manlio Maghenzani, and I've been an exchange student in Georgia. I've always loved and played soccer since I was a kid and my goal right know is to became a student athlete, so I can continue to play at a competitive level while I'm in college. So why should I be a good athlete for your program? First of all, I've been a goalkeeper for almost 11 years, and I have a lot of experience; I have played with grown men in the Italian 5th League (as a player from the youth team, without being paid), and I've made the All County (Parma) Soccer Team in 2016, and the All Region (Emilia-Romagna) Soccer Team in 2017; I've been selected to be part of a bunch of tryouts for professionals teams, such as Parma Calcio 1913, that plays in the Italian 1st League (Serie A), and I've played against professionals youth teams, such as U.S. Sassuolo Calcio, Parma Calcio 1913, and Reggio Audace F.C. I think I would be a good leader inside and outside the field, and I am a good student, even though sometimes I am not focused 100% on school as I should, and I know I have to improve under this aspect.
