Winning the 2018 ECNL National Championship has been the highlight of my soccer career so far and I am looking forward to continuing to play soccer at an elite level. Playing soccer at the ECNL level brings a vast amount of stress and pressure. However, every time I step onto the field and with every single touch on the ball, all the stress floats away and the pressure relinquishes. I love every single aspect of this game: the sister-like friendships, making connections with your coaches, traveling for games, the feeling when completing a successful play or out-battling your opponent, the feeling when your team scores and when you win a game. The game brings me great happiness, it defines me. I express myself through playing it. Every time I wear my team uniform, I feel strong, confident, and ready to take on the world. I want to continue to experience the joy of the game throughout college and hopefully even longer.
