My parents have instilled in me the benefits of hard work and perseverance. I am proud of the challenges I've faced and overcome en route to being the starting left back of the Philadelphia Ukrainian Nationals (Ukies), and making the Eastern Pennsylvania ODP team. Both teams showed me there were other great players and people out there. The transfer to the Ukies was fun and challenging; being the new kid on the team I had to prove that I could play at this new level. I am excited for that challenge as I look to accomplish my next goal of being a collegiate soccer player.
As I begin my college search, I am interested in finding a school that will provide a balance of both prestigious academics and an excellent soccer program. I look forward to being part of a university that will challenge me academically and where I can contribute in a meaningful way to its soccer program.
