I have been playing soccer since I was five years old. From the first time I stepped on the field, I fell in love with the game and many of the game's great players. Since then, my dream to play college soccer has grown throughout the years and I realize that through hard work, dedication, and the will to succeed I can achieve this goal. I plan to give my all on and off the field in order to reach this goal.
I have very quick feet, tremendous acceleration, great passing skills, and a knack for knowing where to be at all times on the field. My coaches always note that I have the highest soccer IQ on the field. I am equally strong with my left foot even though I'm right foot dominant. When I play as a holding midfielder I believe that I own and control the middle of the field. No opponent receives an unchallenged pass or is able to get past me. I take pride in my defense. I truly believe I am an elite defender. Also, I play as an attacking midfielder since my coaches know that I'm a dynamic playmaker on offense and I can create a lot of opportunities for my team. People say that my style of play on offense reminds them of Lieke Martens of the Netherlands or Eden Hazard from Chelsea. I am a team leader and try to set an example for the rest of my teammates by constant communication, my "never give up" mentality, and always having a positive attitude. I am very coachable and I'm always trying to improve so I can become the best student athlete I can be. Great effort and perseverance is what I am known for. I give 110% in everything I do, whether it's on the field or in the classroom.
In the classroom, I study very hard and currently have a 4.0 GPA. after 2 full years of high school. I am committed to maintaining a very high GPA throughout my high school career and into college. I am actively involved in my school and belong to several clubs. One club that I'm particularly proud of is Best Buddies. Best Buddies provides disabled and non-disabled students with an opportunity to socially interact with the school community. I enjoy helping others that may not have the same opportunities that I do.
I would like to attend a college where I can challenge myself both academically and athletically. I ultimately want to find the college that is the best fit for me. I would like to play soccer at the highest level possible, positively impacting myself and the college I select. I strive to become a successful student, athlete, and role model to all around me. My idol is Alex Morgan and I would love to inspire others as much as she has inspired me.
