My collegiate goals are not only be to become a better player but a better person. I want to continue to increase my skills while also pushing myself out of my comfort zone. What makes me a good candidate for any team would be that I am hard working. If a challenge is set in front of me I don’t stop or give up until I have overcome it. I make mistakes along the journey to overcome these challenges but I learn from those mistakes, making me better as a player and as a teammate. Mistakes are a part of life and I understand that, when making a mistake on the field I understand that it not only affects me but my teammates also. What makes me different from others would be my ability to understand that I am not the only person who makes mistakes on the soccer field. Everyone on the team has a couple of rough games. What I’ve learned from other’s actions is that yelling at a teammate for making a mistake will not help them become a better player or add to the cohesion of the team. It will only frighten them from making the same mistakes again instead of challenging them to learn from their mistakes. This makes me different from many who play at my level of soccer. I know that a more appropriate and effective way would be to give them advice and support. Yes, soccer does involve lots of yelling, but those should be words of encouragement and play making.
