I have played soccer since I was five. The game has been very influential in my life. Through soccer, I have learned how to be a good leader, have a strong work ethic, and to creatively solve problems. The lessons that I have learned through the game have been some of the most applicable and influential experiences in my life. One of my greatest memories is having the opportunity to playing internationally in Greece, Spain, and Portugal. These experiences taught me that soccer is more than just a game and that it can be extremely impactful on other people’s lives. Growing up, both my parents were teachers and runners. They instilled in me a natural drive to do well academically and a want to have the highest fitness level that I can. I am looking to major in biology while playing at the collegiate level.
