My love for soccer began when I was only two years old and I have loved it ever since. I am known as the "little red with the soccer ball". I identify myself as a scholar athlete. I have spent countless days, nights and weekends practicing and competing yet always kept my grades up. I have learned over the years that I hate losing, whether it is in practice games, or scrimmages. I always want to win. I want to play at the highest level that I can and also be able to do well with my course load. I know I can bring a competitive spirit to any roster and help with making a successful team. I can lead the team in a positive direction on and off the field. My coaches tell me I have positive energy that is contagious.
In the Spring of 2019, I had to overcome the biggest obstacle of my soccer career, an injury! This required me to have ACL reconstructive surgery (anterior cruciate ligament). This surgery made me miss almost a year of play. Over that year I have been to each game supporting my team. I was able to watch the game from a different perspective, a perspective that I never thought I would have to see it through. Still, I tried to help both of my teams win in any way I could, even though I couldn't be on the field with them. I didn't feel sorry for myself and neither did my team mates. I have been determined to be better than before with a year of physical therapy, practice, determination and self motivation. My doctors, coaches and therapists are amazed how quickly I healed. Now I am ready to continue where I left off, at the top.
