I started playing soccer when I was 4 years old. My parents always made sure to offer me other sports each season, so I played a lot of rec league flag football in the fall, basketball in the winter and baseball in the spring in addition to soccer all year around. Over time, the other sports fell away as I focused on the sport I love. Soccer has provided me with a group of friends and a sense of belonging throughout middle school and into high school, as I have been with my current club for several years now. I have grown as a player and as a person through my soccer experiences. I have the joys of winning the NY Cup in Spring 2018, and beating our arch rivals in a PK shootout when I was 10 seared into my memories. I have also traveled to England as a part of the Next Gen USA select squad program. Soccer has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and I hope to keep it as that through my college experience.
