I have been playing soccer for as long as I can remember. Since I entered middle school, I have dreamed of playing at the collegiate level. I know that playing in college is a once in a lifetime opportunity that could change my whole life.
I have excellent strength and ball distribution. I am a leader on and off the field and always try to set the bar for my team. I am very coachable and always do what is needed of me. I love to receive advice that ultimately improves my play.
In the classroom, I study hard to maintain a high GPA. During my freshman year, I had a spinal fusion for an injury obtained from soccer in my eighth grade year. The surgery kept me bedridden and out of school for two months. My freshman year GPA was nowhere near where I had wanted it to be after my surgery. During my sophomore year, I have been working hard to get my grades up to the level I expect of myself.
Along with being out of school, I was out of soccer for six months. Not being able to play the sport I love so much was one of the hardest thing I have ever had to go through, and made my desire to play in college even stronger. It made me realize that I could barely function without soccer. I have been working hard to get back to my previous form, and will continue until and after I get back.
The surgery has been a huge part of my life, but it has not impaired my ability to play soccer.
I want to attend a college where I can improve in the classroom and on the field. I am open to all options to ensure I find the perfect match for me. I wish to play at the highest level I possibly can, while having the school match my wants and needs. I am not 100 percent sure what I would like to major in, but I am leaning towards the fields of psychology or business. I hope to become a great role model, player, and person and most of all make my parents proud.
