Personal Statement

I have a goal to play soccer at a collegiate level.  I would also like to be at a school where I can develop as an individual and receive a solid education that will prepare me for any future endeavors.

I am unique as I was in a military family. My father spent 24 years in the Marine Corps. As a child, I lived in several different states and moved overseas. This gave me the opportunity to see different ways of life, including how soccer is played in different parts of the world. Regular moves also taught me how to connect with people from all backgrounds and helped develop my social skills. I became more resilient and could adapt to new situations.

Academically, I have worked hard to improve my grades and as a result my GPA improved from a 2.8 to a 3.3 (my semester GPA in the spring of 2020 was a 3.8). I have taken advantage of opportunities for support, including taking an additional math class and working with a writing tutor after school.

I have played soccer since I was in preschool but have become extremely committed to improving my game. I have attended camps and worked with trainers to strengthen my skills and agility. I also joined the track team to improve my stamina and running. I have been a leader in my community, organizing soccer clubs and leagues. I strive to always have a positive attitude which makes me a good team player. I want to give my best, but it is also important to me to support my teammates.

I am also able to balance my academics and athletics with a job and a commitment to community service. For more than a year, I’ve worked part time as a cashier at a local grocery store. In addition, I volunteer weekly at my church’s sandwich ministry which makes food for a homeless shelter. I have also worked as a volunteer summer camp counselor.           

I feel strongly that my skills and experience will be an asset to a college soccer team. I value hard work, commitment and teamwork. I look forward to growing as a student and athlete and to focusing my dedication on your team.
