I have been playing soccer ever since I was 3 years old. I instantly fell in love with the game because of the competitive aspect and also being able to be apart of a team that always encouraged me to do my best. I intend to play college soccer because it is a great opportunity for me to continue to play the sport that I love and it will allow me a once in a lifetime chance to play at such a high level of soccer.
I am technically sound and can move the ball with great composure with both feet. I am able to read the game well, so I know when to step and go forward or to hold back. I communicate what I see to my teammates around the field. Also, I am very coachable and can pick up on plays quickly. I am tenacious and I work extremely hard to always improve. I am a leader on and off the field. I lead by example, I always push my team to be their best and by encouraging them but also helping them understand the game.
In school, I have a 4.0 GPA and I am taking honors chemistry. I am very diligent when it comes to school and I work hard to keep my grades up. Also at school, I participate in 2 clubs. One of the clubs is a voluntary work club called Interact, where I do community service with the oraganizarion to improve and support the community. The other club that I am in is called AMAZE where we work with students with special need and do arts and crafts with them to make sure that they feel included in our community.
Outside of soccer and school, I enjoy traveling, hanging out with friends, and joining in camps and groups that I get to enjoy with my friends. I am part of a confirmation class with my church. It is a 2 year class were we learn and grow with my religion to become a full member of the church. We do community service called "personal growth and outreach projects" that helps our environment and world by working with bigger organizations to help collect and donate. Not only does this help our community but it is also reaching out to help the people that are not as fortunate as us. In addition to just helping people, we also look for opportunities to help with the ecosystem by restoring the bay and also we help animals by providing blankets for the shelters. Another activity I do during summers is that I work at camps. I do 2 camps; one teaching soccer to little kids and the other being a junior counselor at a nature camp. I have learned many of my leadership skills throughout my work at these camps. I enjoy the camps because you are able to bring enjoyment to kids’ faces and you are able to guide them along the expirences of childhood. To me the camp leaders I had as a child allowed me to find a love for soccer and adventure. I want to be able to give the new generation the same expirence that I had.
I want to attend a college that will not only allow me to play soccer, but that will also allow me to pursue my major. I want to be pushed to be my best in the classroom and on the field. I want to make my parents proud because they have always been there to encourage me and to help me to be the person and player that I am today.
