My goal is to attend a college that will challenge me both athletically and academically. Most of my free time is spent with a soccer ball at my feet, and I am interested in pursuing a career in the medical field. I started playing U19 travel soccer when I was 12 years old. This has helped me with strength on the ball, since I've been playing against much bigger girls for several years. I am always looking for ways to improve my soccer abilities, and I do my best to stay in shape all year. I have exceptional endurance that is continuously improving due to soccer and track training, and I attend summer workouts in the weight room at school for strength training. During a game, I give all I have and never stop trying. If I ever lose the ball, I do everything I can to win it back, not just relying on my teammates. When I need to be, I am selfish on the ball. On the field, I make sure that I know who is around me, and where my teammates are so I am able to distribute to the best option. I also never force the ball when I am able to relax and work around the defense. I communicate with my team to make this situation easier. I also do what I can to bond with my teammates. Whether it is during practice, a game, or a fun team activity, everyone is included. I am a very coachable player. Many of my coaches have complimented me in this area, because I listen to their advice to make improvements on the field. One of my most important qualities is that I am respectful to everyone. This includes my coaches, my teammates, and referees. Academically, I am a high honors student. I work to exceed teachers’ expectations on things like homework, tests, and study techniques. I use my resources to better understand the topic, and I am very self motivated. I want to succeed while also challenging myself. Another important quality that I possess is that I love to help out. I am a member of three volunteer clubs at my school. Each club brings me to various locations in the community to help out with groups such as children, veterans, and the elderly. I believe these are the most important aspects of my life that truly make me a perfect candidate for any college.
