As a naturalized citizen of the United States from Ghana, I understand the importance of dedication. Attempting to become a citizen of another country is not for one who lacks ambition. I am honored to have been a part of the selected few who made it. Soccer (or football in my country) has always been a part of my life. In Ghana, all we did was play the game. When my high school soccer career began, my explosive speed caught the attention of my high school coach. Technical soccer is something that I continually focus on to contrast with the speed gifted to me. I spend countless hours, watching many professional and college games, and studying the game. I was able to develop into a smarter, and stronger player which lead me to get into club soccer in Connecticut. I began my club soccer career two years over my age group and with each coming year, the experience gap between myself and other players decrease . Experiencing such adversity as the youngest soccer player for the club in which I play, motivated me to become the best, regardless of who I went up against. Due to this adversity, I am confident in my ability to adapt to any competition, and make a difference on any pitch, against any opponent.
Outside of soccer, I have a strong passion to enter a good architectural program that will support my dream of building unique facilities in poorer areas. Being a straight A student along with the dedication I put into soccer gives me confidence that in the future, I am capable of withstanding the rigors of college education.
