Personal Statement

When I was four years old I was diagnosed with Minimal Change Disease (MCD). MCD is a kidney disease where large amounts of proteins are excreted through the urine. I was on the kidney transplant list and I had to get my blood drawn every week so they could monitor the progression of the disease. This experience made my childhood very hard; it changed the way I view life and the way I live mine. Shortly after starting the medication in preparation for the transplant, the disease started to reverse itself for no known reason. I fully recovered with both of my kidneys still in my body and I continue to enjoy great health to this day. 

I got into soccer shortly after this childhood experience because it was a way to relieve the stress from that trauma. I have been playing soccer since I was 4 years old, and I have been on over 4 different teams throughout that time span. After that incident, I found a true and everlasting appreciation for my life and how I live it. It made me realize how sudden happenstances can occur and how they, although varying in severity, can truly impact the course of one’s life. I live day by day being extremely hardworking and enthusiastic about my work. I’m always willing to try new things with hopes of learning something that would make me physically, mentally, or emotionally stronger. I put my all into everything that is put in front of me simply due to the fact that I am lucky to be given the opportunity to do so in the first place.
