My soccer experience started the earliest I could get my foot on a ball. I joined AYSO when I was 3 and my love of the game developed immediately. I joined a developmental program to master skills and to focus on touches on the ball. I have played on a boys club soccer team, girls club soccer teams, and finally to my current ECNL team. Playing on a boys club soccer team taught me at an early age to be aggressive and first to the ball as a midfielder and helped shape me into the soccer player that I am today. By having the opportunity to play on a boys team, it provided me with a different point of view from playing on a girls team. I was able to identify at a young age this fast pace game and to be able to distribute the ball in 1 to 2 touches.
Making varsity soccer as a freshman, was such a wonderful experience for me. From playing on a new team of upperclassmen I was able to see the game through a new point of view.In addition, being on various sports teams they have all thought me the value of teamwork, sacrifice, and commitment.
