My name is Ramon Eduardo Caceres and I am 13 years old and currently an aspiring freshman. My passion for soccer started a long time ago when I first got introduced to the sport in my PE classes at school. I was seven, and at the time the only sport I played outside of school was baseball. Since then, I have practiced soccer almost every day of the school week and have attended games or tournaments on most weekends. I have worked my hardest to become the best I can be, trying to be a good team player and building my skills each day, learning from my mistakes and my successes. Moreover, soccer has immensely influenced me by teaching me life lessons such as the importance of teamwork and how working hard every day does pay off. It has provided discipline and motivation and has been of great importance in my everyday life. Just as significant, this marvelous sport has allowed me to define, and led me to pursue, my dream of participating in a major college program at a top university and then playing for a professional soccer team.
