My collegiate goal for athletics is to play college soccer. I didn't become really interested in playing soccer until I was 11, and that's when I started playing club soccer. My hard work, desire, and my passion for soccer make me a great candidate for any school. I always put in effort into becoming the best player I can be. I am always the first one to every practice and game, as well as the last one to leave. A big detail of my life that influenced who I am is how important soccer is to me. Without soccer, I wouldn't be as motivated to get good grades or stay in shape. Soccer is what keeps me going in life. I've never had anything in my life that's been so important to me. I felt I grew most as a soccer player when I was 14, and my team came in 3rd for State Cup. Next year when I was 15, we won nationals. I had to realize what it was like to lose, so it could motivate me to come back strong and win. My academic goals in high school are to maintain a 3.7 GPA for the rest of my high school years, and maintain a top 50 position in my class rankings.
