- I grew up in a traditional household with three siblings and have always had supportive parents. Since I am the oldest of three girls in my family, I am the "trial" child and the first in my family to go through this process finding a college based on my academic and athletic interest. I started playing soccer shortly after I could walk, and have found my own love for the game since then. I have learned a lot throughout my soccer career with highlights being team skills, working with others, and coachability. Specifically, learning the importance of coachability helped me to receive coach's feedback and apply it helping me move forward quicker than I would have otherwise. I have been going to camps and developing my technical skill since I was young. As a player I am good in tight spaces, and being a midfielder I have good vision of the field. As a leader playing attacking midfield on my club team we have made it to the championships of tournaments such as the Presidents Cup and the Denver International Cup. On my highschool team I played varsity my Freshman year where we were undefeated in the league advancing to the State Championship. In addition to soccer, academically I want to go to college to focus on science and biology since as that is an interesting field to me. I have always been interested in human advancements and cures coming from biotechnology and nanotechnology. Recently, I have been networking to find connections for internships and more exposure to that area. I have also been working toward a higher GPA to prepare myself for the field and to keep my eligibility standard for colleges.
