Personal Statement

    Playing soccer is exhilarating from the challenge of competition , to the self-discipline of training, to the friendships developed among teammates. Playing against the best competition in our country only drives me to challenge myself more and more.

    I was born and raised in Washington, DC. My dad was from Trinidad and my mom is from New Hampshire. I am the second of six kids and a twin. My dad passed away when I was 12 years old - making my mom a single parent of six. Having to grow up faster than the usual teenager also made me grow as a player because it taught me to rely on myself and to make decisions. One of the most challenging obstacles I have had to face in my soccer career has been transportation to practice and games. Sometimes I had to take the train, the bus, or walk since my mom was busy working and had other responsibilities on her plate. Recently moving for the first time in my life only made the transportation issue worse eventually leading me to transfer clubs. It was a difficult transition because I was so invested in my former club and teammates. But I had to open my eyes and look at a new opportunity and a new team to invest in that would also make more sense for our circumstance.

    Overall, no matter what the obstacle I’m still ten toes down for soccer! These challenges only help me build character and confidence.

    I am interested in a program where the coaches are willing to guide me in taking smart risks in my play. I am a humble person who’s hungry to keep learning. Academically, I am looking for a school where I can continue to grow as a student and receive a degree in Engineering.
