My goal for college soccer is to work hard and improve my skills in a competitive environment. When I was a high school freshmen, it wasn't enough for me to be on the freshmen team. Instead, I gave my maximum effort to earn a starting position on the high school varsity team. I have always played at the highest level available, and played-up in age groups during club soccer. Even when I was injured during the fall 2019 season, I never missed practice. I committed to helping the team any way I could, including managing the equipment and shagging balls. Although high school and club soccer taught me a lot, it has not challenged me to be the player I know I can be. I want to play at a higher level, with a competitive team that requires dedication and commitment.
In addition to my soccer ambitions, I want my educational experience to support my career goals after college. When I was injured, I went through physical therapy. I worked hard on my therapy and was grateful for the support of my therapist. This experience showed me the importance of physical therapy professionals, and made me realize this would be a good career path for me. After my 4 years of NCAA eligibility, I plan to go to graduate school to earn my DPT degree to support athletes in the same way I was supported.
