Athletics have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. I have always enjoyed playing sports. Starting with swimming, to softball, to basketball and soccer. I enjoy playing team sports and have come to realize its influence on my school and out of school life. Academics are very important to me, and I strive to achieve the highest grades. I started soccer around my 4th-grade year in school, when I was 10 years old. It was a new sport at the time, wanted to try out a different competitive sport. After playing for the first year I realized that I was a decent player and started to consider the possibility of me playing in college or professionally.
