Becoming captain in my sophomore year of high school, so far, has been the highlight of my high school career. This has taught me many lessons and made me realize how leadership is something that I can pursue. I have learned that it takes more than being good at soccer to be an asset on a team. In addition to good personality, bravery and the will to make mistakes/learn from them accompanies successful captain-ship and team contribution. This has helped me grow as an individual and I will use this on any team I join (even those outside of soccer). In addition to soccer, I have also acknowledged the importance of having a successful academic career; I want a school that fits me in both departments. Between soccer and school, I do whatever I can to reach my full potential.
I want to use my leadership, will to learn, and work-ethic to make an impact on any team. Winning and succeeding is something that is very important to me and serves as a constant reminder to fulfill my responsibilities and goals. Joining the best soccer team in New Hampshire, I was forced to dig deep and work 110% on and off the field in order to be at the top of that level. I have been exposed to different team environments and had many opportunities to learn and develop as a multi-sport athlete. My athleticism, academic abilities, leadership, and work-ethic will make me a strong fit for any team.
