When I was young, soccer was always important to me. I love going to practices and games, and enjoy building connections with my team. Growing up, my dad was my coach and it made me love the sport even more. I have always played an important role to the team. I am always communicating and keeping my back line organized. Nowadays I play for Maryland United FC, and here I tend to always be a leader on the defensive line. Keeping the line organized is very important because it can cause counter attacks and prevent goal opportunities for the opposite team.
My parents have always been a big help in school. During my school years, I have always been ahead in math. I took AP Calculus AB as a Sophomore and am taking Calculus BC as a Junior. Currently I am taking three AP courses; AP Physics, AP Language Composition, and AP Calculus BC. My parents have been supportive and caring with me. I have a love for sports and hope to continue that within the near future. I would like to see, when I am a adult, kids recovering from major or minor injuries and continue playing the sport they are passionate about. I feel that since I have had injuries in the past and recovered from them, I could motivate individuals to do the same.
Right now I do a few extracurricular activities. During the summer I am part of a swim team. On the team I am a role model for the kids aging, four to seven. I help the coaches teach the younger kids how to do each of the four strokes. Along with swimming, I also volunteer at church. I am a peer at my church. That means that I help kids who want to be confirmed gather information about themselves. At church the peers serve as a great source for younger teens to talk about issues they face and help them seek comfort. In school, I have volunteered as a peer buddy. What this means is that I proved support and care for the kids who can't do everything on their own.
