Soccer is not my future, but it is the key to my future. In 2013, I was fortunate enough to visit Europe, attend a professional soccer game, and meet my future host brother, Cyril Gonzalez. Cyril quickly became a huge influence in my life. Cyril was constantly practicing soccer and pushing himself to be better in sports and academics. From watching Cyril, I learned how to have a great work ethic. I now strive to improve academically as well as on the field. I know what it takes to be a leader. I am respectful person who is a very hard worker. Cyril furthered my love for soccer and made it a sport I am passionate about. It is my goal to play college soccer. With acceptance into college, I want to further study Engineering, Business or Communications.
