Winning a Dallas Cup title, two High School State Prep Championships, two High School National Championships, and becoming a captain, in a two and a half year period of time, were the major accomplishments that highlighted my high school career. However, I feel that being a reserve back in my country helped me shape who am I today. I always wanted to play soccer and study at the same time, in the U.S., since in Brazil you have to choose in between one or another. I started playing soccer when I was six years old because I had a dream to become a professional soccer player.
My goals in life are, to be a good man, and get a post graduate degree. I never like to lose, and I always have fighting spirit. I want to be better than I was yesterday all the time. I dedicate myself for every single situation in life with motivation and perseverance.
