I began playing soccer when I was 3 years old, and travel since I was 7. At the time, the club did not have a travel team for my age group, so I had to play two years up. The adjustment was difficult at first, but playing with older girls made me eager to always want to improve. I became a stronger player physically and mentally and I learned good working habits on and off the field. When I think of my dream college, I envision a school with strong academics and a soccer program that will challenge me and make me a better player.
