Personal Statement

UPDATE 3/11/19 : Because I chose to go to a private high school with a higher level of academics and soccer outside of 30 miles from home, the IHSA requires me to sit out my freshman year of high school sports. I am allowed to train with varsity program but not allowed to participate in games. Any questions please contact my coach,  Jesse Essenpreis at or 618-604-8421.

When I first started playing soccer, little did I know that it would become such a passion in my life that I would one day want to pursue a career centered around the sport. Seeing the way soccer is a lifestyle in Barcelona, makes me want that passion of the sport here in the United States.  I am a very competitive and dedicated person, willing to train harder and longer than any of my teammates so to accomplish any individual or team goals. I'm a quick learner who is very coachable, able to learn new patterns and formations quickly.  I truly love playing out wide in the midfield or up front so we can use our width to open up defenses and “create” scoring opportunities not just dump and run soccer.

My academics are also very important to me as I've maintained straight A grades throughout  grade school and  high school even while traveling over an hour and a half to my club training sessions two to three nights a week plus games. I hope to pursue a business / sports management / sports  psychology degree in college.

 NCAA Eligibility ID # 1809284602

 Athletic Qualities :

Good foot skills with both feet and can shoot well using both right and left foot as well. 

Team leader with good field vision, able to see and hit open teammates with passes as well as crosses from the flanks for scoring opportunities.                 

Consistently making good runs off the ball to open up defenses and create scoring chances.

Never give up attitude regardless of game score...I always play hard till the whistle.

Good to play hard for full game.

Having played with teams in different regions and countries I'm able to quickly adapt to many different styles of play and formations.

Goals :

I am looking to play and contribute in a high quality women's soccer program as well as receive a high quality education from a prestigious university so as to have something to fall back on when my soccer playing days are over.  My goal is to work to play in the WPSL or international league soccer before pursuing a soccer related career or sports management / business  career. Coaching at the college level or higher would be a dream job when I’m done playing.
