Since beginning the game at an early age, I have realized my love for soccer. Through the game, I have learned how to be coached, how to be a leader and a good teammate, how to compete respectfully, and how to set goals and see them through to finish. My participation in high-level club and high school soccer has enabled me to develop skill and excellent pace in a highly competitive environment. All the while, I have maintained my commitment to the classroom, demonstrated by good grades and multiple student awards. I want to continue my development of these two passions and play soccer collegiately for a successful program at an excellent school.
