My passion is soccer. I am a student of the game and am always looking for an opportunity to improve. I was provided the opportunity to spend my 10th grade year in Denmark at Kies Sports Academy and train and study with like-minded athletes for a year. I was invited back for my eleventh-grade year, but COVID-19 prevented that from happening. Not only am I a hard worker on the pitch, but I am also a hard worker in the classroom, having achieved a 3.9 (unweighted)/4.8 (weighted) GPA in all Honors classes. My senior year will be spent taking all dual-credit classes as I will have completed my high school curriculum at the end of my junior year. I have also worked a part-time job, volunteered at church, and other civic activities. On the soccer pitch, I am a starter at defensive midfield on my varsity team and as a center back on my club (NPL) team. My ultimate goals are to play in college at the D1 or D2 level at an academically challenging institution and move on to the professional level after graduating.
