I have been playing soccer since I was 2 years old and the sport has always been my passion. Once I truly began playing the sport competitively at age 8 I began aspiring to play at both the collegiate and professional levels. What causes me to stand out in comparison to other players is that I have a very strong work ethic, desire to consistently learn and improve, and thirst for competition. I have a positive and open minded attitude, I am a team player, and always look to help the players around me improve and succeed. Not only do I have a desire to succeed on the soccer field, but also in the classroom. This is evident in my consistent good grades and desire to achieve my best in school at a very young age.
