Personal Statement

After playing my first year of college soccer for Central Wyoming College it has made me appreciate the game and everything that goes into it. During my first year of college soccer, I had to learn how to play at a faster level of play and a completely new position. It was a brand-new soccer program at Central Wyoming during Covid-19, when a ton of programs just weren’t playing at all. I ended up not losing any eligibility and got good college soccer experience. I also managed to keep a 3.8 GPA during the soccer season while taking 21 credits. I am looking forward to making it to the regional playoffs again and playing at even a higher level the Fall of 2023. My plan is to coach college soccer after I finish playing in college.

I just got home from serving a 2-year volunteer church mission where I had to move to a completely different state, learn a new language, and work 24/7! This was an experience I will never forget. I am very grateful I got to share a message I am so passionate about with tons of people in different languages. This experience also taught me good leadership skills and how to work with others. I learned to set goals and work extremely hard when no one is looking. I learned that you need to put in the work when no one is watching to become great. School and getting a good education are very important to me. The chance to improve academically, individually, and physically is the kind of program I am looking for. If your program and college can do that, please email me!
