Versatility has always been an important aspect of my game. I take great pride in knowing I am not limited to one position or formation. Being a smaller player and constantly being doubted by coaches and the competition has allowed me to become mentally tougher and physically stronger. When I was younger I was told many times by coaches that they had concerns about me playing at the highest club level because I was small in weight and height. I believe my size has been a blessing. Being small forced me to use what I have as an advantage on the field, I am quick on my feet and my in game decision making is one of my best assets to a team. I learned early on that being strategic and learning as much as possible about the game was essential to my success. I have worked tirelessly on fine tuning my passing abilities and ball skills. I am also committed to becoming stronger; my size does not prevent me from loving the physicality of the game. Quite the opposite, I thrive on physical play in matches and love the expression on the larger player’s faces when I muscle them off the ball or win a ball they thought they had already won. I believe my mental toughness and work ethic will help me navigate my future career as a college soccer player.
