My ultimate goals in life have always been to play college soccer and make it professional some day. Growing up, I have always worked hard to accomplish my goals. Whether it's during practices or while I'm playing a game, I always make sure to give my all from beginning to end. Compliments and words of encouragement from coaches, team mates, refs, and even strangers have made me the player I am today. Others may see a loss as a loss, but I see it as a opportunity to do better. My coaches and teammates have often called me "Gadget Legs", because of my techniques, especially my tackling which I thank my long legs for. To me, soccer is not only a sport but a way of living. I'm most often caught practicing with friends or watching "Top 10 Plays" from my favorite teams, such as FC Barcelona, and players who I have always looked up to, especially Ronaldinho, Messi, and Zlatan. I have always been hooked on the way they played-their quick passes, teamwork, and amazing technique. If I ever do make it to play on the college level or pro, I hope to not only excel, but to make those who helped me on the way proud and remind myself that I accomplished my dreams.
