Soccer has always been a important part of my life. I’ve played ever since I was in first grade and have always loved it. I lived in Costa Rica from ages 8 to 12 which made soccer become a cultural part of my life as well, seeing as it is the only sport in Costa Rica and is intertwined into life there. Once I moved back to the US I also became a soccer referee involving me even more in the soccer world. Soccer has become a huge part of my life which is why I hope I will be able to continue playing soccer in college and keep on playing the sport I love so much.
