Soccer has been a passion of mine since I was eight years old. I’ve played competitively for five years at the highest level in club and I’m considered a key leader on my team. My preferred position is right wing but I am a universal player and can be put anywhere on the field except for keeper. Soccer has taught me to be a hard worker and to manage my time management skills. I am a dedicated and committed individual in soccer as well as in the classroom. I’ve overcome a lot of adversity in my personal and social life. I grew up playing soccer locally, when my team dropped two divisions, I was devastated. My family could not afford for me to play at the HPL level, as well couldn’t committed time to drive me to another city 3 times a week to play out of district. Throughout that stage in my life, I told myself if I was good enough to play at the collegiate level it wouldn’t matter what team or division I was on. I commited to outside practices, gym training and researching camps and academies that would help me develop as a player. Soccer has been the steadiest thing in my life; it has always been there for me and has kept me from going down the wrong path. By playing soccer, my anxiety, and overall mental health, has been managed and keeps me looking forward to the future. I am motivated to play collegiate soccer and have been told that I am very coachable. To play soccer at the post-secondary level has been a dream of mine since I was little. I hope to be considered to play at the next level because I will be an asset to any team that I play on.
