Personal Statement

My name is Daniel Salas García. I am from Spain and I am 11th grader at The Macduffie School; I play for their Varsity Soccer team with a scholarship and I am one of the bests in my team.  This is my first year studying in the U.S and I love this country and Its education system; that is why I want to stay here at college too. Talking about soccer, I started playing since I was a 3-year-old kid and I've played for many clubs in Spain.  I've played every game and nearly every minute of the entire season and I've scored 10 goals and given 16 assists. We play in NEPSAC Class D and that's a problem for me because College coaches don't come to see D4 games but instead, they assist at D1 and D2 games. In the pitch, I am a leader, a pure number 10 with good pass filtering and a decent shot from outside the area. I read really good the game, I create spaces from any play and with my game I make the team more compact. 

In the winter season, I formed part of the Event Crew team which was consisted of 11 students. I was one of the 3 captains of the team and what we did is organize every event. I learned a lot of things during this period and the following things were the most useful ones. 

I learned how to use a full basketball scoreboard, with the shot-clock, the book, the points, time, faults, etc… I worked in every home basketball game from every team in my school, by managing the scoreboard, wiping the floor, water for the teams, etc… or even by selling concessions at the gyms front door. For these three months, I have been responsible for the MacDuffie Athletics Instagram Account: @macmustangs. This meant I had to post pictures from every team every week, and also interview student-athletes of the week and post it. On many occasions, I had to travel with the ping-pong and swimming teams to their away games. In these travels, I made pictures of the Athletes and Posted them on Instagram, as well as sending them to the whole school.

I also learned how to clean each team's equipment and kits so everything was ready for each game and practice. Also, I promoted each team's game by putting up posters all over the school with the necessary information for each game. We had interminable cleaning and moving stuff jobs and we finished the season creating the sport's awards presentation which consisted of putting all rosters and all pictures of every team in a massive PowerPoint. Doing this job I became much more mature, learned to have a responsibility and how to manage stress. Furthermore, this made realize how much work it’s put in behind each sport event. 

I would really like to play for a college while studying sports management; which is the major I have always wanted to do and has always been my dream job.
