My strong faith has taught me that God has given me a gift in everything I do. I am blessed to do what I do in his name. I will never put myself first. I am a team player. I have been inspired to play soccer for as long as I can remember. I first stepped foot on a soccer field at the age of 5. It was a feeling of excitement, and I still feel this way every time I set foot on the pitch! I am goal driven and I am looking forward to what my future holds for me in my academics and athletics. My education is very important to me and I have always stayed above a 3.5 grade point average. I know that my education comes first. It sets the tone for my future no matter what it might be. I work hard on the field and in the classroom. I have been apart of the Iowa ODP program for 4 years. I am always ready to learn and train hard. I push my comfort levels and I am always eager to grow as an athlete and student. I want to continue to play this sport that I love so much. I am looking forward to my future and what God has in store for me in every aspect of my life. And I know college and playing soccer is part of it.
