I have been playing soccer since I was 6. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be able to play soccer at the collegiate level. I have always worked to achieve that goal, in school soccer and as a member of the club team NEFC. I am a hard working and persistent athlete that is always striving to improve through training and conditions while at the same time learning new techniques to better my play.
As a member of the Gardner High School soccer team, I have had the ability to play in varsity competition as a freshman, sophomore, junior and a senior. As a sophomore, I became the starting varsity goalkeeper for my team. This led me to having played varsity soccer for four years of high school, providing me with the ability to learn about leading and working with a team at the top high school level. It also gave me the opportunity to better my goalkeeping against the top players and teams in my area.
Academically, I am working to increase my GPA from a 3.4 and maintain an average that will keep me on my school's Principals List. During my past high school years I have taken 6 AP classes with 3 on my schedule for this year. Along with those, I complete my schedule with a large amount of honors classes each and every year. I also attempt to achieve high grades in each class I take. I scored a 1230 on my initial taking of the SAT but will participate in a retake in the Fall.
Ultimately, whether on the soccer field or in the classroom I complete the tasks needed to ensure I become better and achieve the goals that are set by me, my teachers, and my coaches.
