All my life, the odds have been against me. My parents got divorced when I was the age of 6, I’m Mexican, was never really fitting in. This could all be looked at negatively but I overlook the situation I’m in at an angle that can always improve myself. The hard times in a one’s life is what builds character. From a young age I understood the difficult times in life. My little brother was diagnosed with a heart tumor and wasn’t expected to live past 2 but here he is today, 14 years old. If he could strive and fight everyday, why couldn’t I? He’s been a huge benefactor to my motivation that keeps me going even when I feel as if I have nothing more to give.
Joining soccer gave me hobby that I instantly fell in love with. It made me fulfill my role as a impactful character. I, Alejandro, know for a fact that putting me on your roster can make an impact and be the player you need to step up to all the challenges we face.
