Personal Statement

My goal is to play highly competitive soccer in college while pursuing a science related degree at an academically challenging school.  Having played since I was four years old, soccer has been a huge part of my life and has helped prepare me for college in many ways by sharpening and developing my teamwork, communication, work-ethic, and leadership skills.  I feel these character attributes are vital on the soccer field and in life.  I currently attend Zionsville High School; regarded as one of the best high schools in Indiana.  In order to prepare for college academic rigors, I am taking many advanced placement (AP) and Honors classes.  I am currently in the top 12 percent of my class; aiming to be in the top 10 percent by the end of my senior year.  In summary, I am an intelligent, athletic, and hard-working student-athlete who is eager to play soccer and study at a great institution.

Although I have always loved soccer, it has offered several personal challenges.  I was asked to play for the Indiana Fire Development Academy (DA) during my 8th grade and freshman years in school.  However, prior to my sophomore year, I was not offered a position on the 17U DA team.  This team was primarily comprised of 2001 birth year players.  Being born in 2002, I was the younger of two age groups and I did not make the cut.  I immediately set a personal goal to get back on the DA the following year.  Playing for my high school team during my sophomore year, I started every game and helped my team achieve a number one ranking in Indiana.  Unfortunately, my team lost in the first round of a very difficult sectional.  Being cut from the DA and losing in sectionals were both hard, but these experiences helped me see that I am able to quickly move on from setbacks.  After the spring 2018 club season, I reached my goal of being selected again to play for the DA.
