It all started when my middle school and I won the district championship in 8th grade. It was a goal I had ever since we lost in 7th grade and I was determined to win it. That feeling of leaving it on the feel felt great, I liked the rush of being competitive against other players, it challenges me to grow stronger. Going into high school I knew I was going with high expectations since the coach recognized me. Since freshman year I was able to prove that my skills and speed will take me far, that’s why going into sophomore year I was able to be in varsity with a pretty strong team full of seniors. I was able to adapt and let that young blood feeling drive the team that I was ready to play. We were able to make it to playoffs but we lost the third round and it really hurt to see the seniors devastated that there season was over. However, since I was still a young developing player, I knew what it took to get to the position we made as a team, and I was willing to work and lead the team next year to another playoff spot. Sadly due to the pandemic we didn’t have the chance to go to playoffs, however, that didn’t stop me from training, I knew if I wanted to go to playoffs again, I had to start early.
My goal is to be able to finish college and major in mechanical engineering while playing competitive soccer. I am a good candidate to take a look at since I have worked on making sure my academic record is ideal for many coaches. What makes me different is that I am willing to put in the work, both on the field and in the classroom.I am going to be 1st generation of my family to go to college and to try to play competitive soccer as well, especially coming from a Hispanic background but being born here. I am a very fast athlete who is willing to grow both physically and mentally in order to succeed.
