My name is Danielle Rotenberg and I am a 15 year old living in Bangkok, Thailand. I am currently a student at Bangkok Patana International School. I represented my school varsity team since I was 11 years old. Aside from soccer (football) which I have been playing since I was 5 years old, I have been practicing taekwondo and earned my black belt at the age of 11. Yet my main focus was on developing my soccer skills and abilities, in which I was awarded with countless trophies, MVPs, and other recognition, such as junior sports girl of the year and so on. I really connected to this beautiful multi skilled sport and team working game. Therefore at the age of 12, I started taking soccer to the next level. This was one of the most life changing decisions I have encountered. From that age I have been focusing on perusing my goals to being best at what I do, without neglecting my academic results. At the age of 13 I was invited to play with the U-16 Israeli national team under a special authorization from UEFA. I was the youngest ever to play as a part of the Israeli team, in the euro qualifications of 2015. It allowed me to witness how all the hard work and dedication was glued together. In the past few years I committed myself to play with the national team whenever they require my attendance. So far I have 12 international appearances against various European national teams, in parallel I play weekly with boys and girls in various leagues and tournaments inside and outside Thailand.
I am a very committed, hardworking midfielder with a very strong work ethic. I am a player that couches rely on. I am a player with a talent to play anywhere on the pitch. I am equally talented on both feet which easily allows me to play both sides of the pitch. I am a very intelligent player and I am able to contribute and shape any team I play. My ability to send correct through balls and switch play when needed is very strong. I am a leader on the pitch. My talent to understand the game enables me to lead any team I am part of. My social skills allow me to interact with my teammates properly inside and outside the pitch.
I recognized that American universities and colleges offer excellent opportunities to develop and enhance my soccer skills, Along with an excellent academic environment. I believe that my soccer skills and talent allow me to peruse a spot in a competitive soccer team as well as maintaining and gaining good academic results. I am certain that with my experience, attitude, talents and skills I am able to contribute to any team that I will be a part of. At the moment I have no specific college or university in mind as well as major although I have some directions. Yet I am confident with my ability to make the right decision when I will be required to do so.
