Since I kicked my first soccer ball at the age of three, I have dreamed of playing soccer at the next level and have always pushed myself to do that. At the collegiate level I aspire to play for a team that competes at a national level. I would also like to attend a school that offers a strong academic program, where I can continue to grow both as a player and a scholar. I would be a welcome addition to a team because I am a solid player who works hard to improve. I have been a multi sport athlete who chose to focus on soccer because I believe it is what brings my passion. I am a coachable athlete who learns quickly and can read the field. I work hard to help my teammates succeed both on and off the field and have worked hard to build my skills so that I can play at the next level. Through soccer, I have learned that there are no good excuses, you should not blame your missed achievements on others. Living up to your potential means owning both your wins and your losses.
Owning my wins and losses, brought me to a defining moment during my freshman year of high school when I experienced several injuries that sidelined me. During that time, those set backs forced me to work harder than ever to get back up into the game. I was more determined than ever to return, stronger than when I left. This experience made me more determined to be better than I was before my injuries. During the time that I couldn't play, I felt lost and searched for ways to stay involved with my teams. I learned that part of being a good teammate is being there for your team, even when you are not able to compete. Supporting others, acting as a leader and voice of reason can be as important off the field as it is on, when working to become the best.
