Since my childhood I have never been afraid of hard work and stepping out of my comfort zone. That has led to much of my success in my life thus far, and has taught me a number of important lessons. As a junior at the top high school in the state of Kentucky, I maintain a 4.0 GPA (5.0 when weighted with the college courses I have taken) and serve as a captain on my school soccer team, as well as club team. I am looking for an institution that will not only help me to fulfill my athletic dreams, but to better myself academically and prepare me for life after soccer. I wish to become a teacher, teaching history to high school students, and to one day become a college professor. I hope to coach soccer at the high school and collegiate levels as well if the opportunity arises.
