When I was five, my mom put me on a local club team, MP United. All throughout my club career, I've been playing with the same club and currently play in the girls' U17 division. In 2016, I became a part of the Northern Mariana Islands Women's National Team, which I am still playing in. As a part of this national team, I have competed in several international competitions hosted by the Asian Football Confederation and the East Asian Girls Regional Championship. Along with this, I have participated in training camps in the Philippines. My first international competition was when I was 12 years old when our team competed in Beijing, China for the EAFF U14 division. I have traveled around the world to many places including, China, Tajikistan, South Korea, and the Philippines. Since the age of 12, I have been obtaining vast amounts of experience and learning about football all around the globe.
I am currently a junior at Saipan International School, a school that I have been attending since kindergarten. I am taking an array of AP courses and I have been a member of the National Honor Society since the 6th grade. Throughout high school, I have maintained a 3.9 GPA and I continue to push myself academically. I am seeking a school that not only challenges me athletically but also academically.
Football has taught me skills like discipline, communication, and leadership. I enjoy learning the technical aspects of the game that I can apply to my own gameplay in order to improve my skills. While still striving for physical greatness, I also want to be able to mentally challenge myself within soccer and continue to develop these mental skills. I would like to play collegiate soccer in order to challenge myself with more competition. My experience with more competition will allow me to take back knowledge to my NMI team in order to further develop and succeed in international tournaments. Being a center back and captain for my team on several occasions, I have learned the joy and skills to work within a team to achieve a goal. I am able to push myself but also able to work with a team effectively, on and off the pitch.
