For as long as I can remember soccer has been my life, my everything, and it makes me who I am. It has turned me into the hardworking and driven person I am today. I started playing soccer when I was around 6 or 7 years old after watching my older brother play and at first it was mostly just to keep me occupied. Then it turned into something more it created the person I am today and I realized this is what I want to do with my life. As soon as I realized I wanted to play soccer for the rest of my life I started practicing more, becoming more discipline, paying more attention to the game, how I can improve everyday , and working harder not just on the pitch but in other places as well such as school. Soccer gives me that passion to always try my very best and to never give up as things always progress and get better. It really has improved my work ethic and how serious I take things with soccer and school a like, I practice day in day out Monday through Friday 2 to 3 hours and making sure I improve my skill and most of all my love for the game. If this hard work and dedication were to payoff I would be the first in my family to make it in soccer and live my dream. For me and my family that's just a phenomenal feat. I owe my parents and god and my coaches for making me a better person and for giving me that drive to always do my best and work hard for what I want.
