As a player and a student, I will always work hard to be the best. That is why in my future, I hope that a team and a coach can appreciate that and that I can help spread that mentality through training and leadership to the rest of the team. Besides being a great athlete and student, I strive to be a good person that can be there for his teammates to reach out to and someone that a coach can have a conversation with about the sport itself. This is why I believe whatever program I get into will not only receive my ability but will also get the leadership that I bring. In addition to this, I am a very adaptable person. I have moved nine times, lived in four states, and have maintained grades and friendships throughout the moves. Some of my closest friends today were made because of soccer. Their backgrounds have ranged from multimillionaire families to minimum wage working parents, but putting aside wealth, we all had a love for the beautiful game. That is why soccer has molded me into the person that I am today.
