Personal Statement

The team manager sent a message saying, “This should not be viewed as a demotion.” However, I took it as such and it lit a fire under me. I had a run of bad form at the same time my club team decided to split up into an A and B team. I was supposed to be moved down to the B team. In the end the teams stayed together, which enabled me to keep playing at a high level of competition. With those words ringing in my head two summers ago, I began training vigorously to win back a starting spot on my team. I garnered results, and played one of my best seasons to date. Learning from that experience, this summer I went to the field at 6:00 am many times a week to practice. The challenging summer training that I have been putting myself through has led to my resurgence as a player and has me excited for what is yet to come.


This work ethic has also trickled into my studies and I have been more devoted than ever to succeed inside and outside the classroom. Education does come first, and I am interested in a college with a great pre-law program. I am also interested in psychology and chemistry. My hard work has led me to believe in my potential and that I am capable of playing college soccer. That message I received has become a chip on my shoulder reminding me of how I was playing at a level not up to my capabilities, and how hard work can turn things around.
