Soccer has greatly influenced my life. Being born in Colombia and growing up in a Colombian household, soccer was always around. It has been my passion for as long as I can remember. It has taught me the importance of hard work, discipline, staying focused, and building relationships. I believe that lessons you learn from sports can help you achieve success in every aspect of your life, including the classroom. My parents have always emphasized academic success in our family, so I would love the opportunity to keep competing at the sport I love to play while getting a college education. Like any serious athlete, I have failed many times, but my incredibly competitive attitude has helped me overcome any failures I’ve encountered and turn them into lessons. I have an enormous desire to improve my game every day. I am driven to become the best player I can be. My talent, commitment, and coachability would make me a great addition to your program!
