Ever since I was in preschool, I knew soccer was meant for me. I was passionate about the game since day one. At the age of four, I started playing on my town team. After playing on that team for about three years, I realized I wanted to take the next step in my soccer career and I soon joined my first club team. This was a great experience for me and gave me the opportunity to improve my skills, but I still was not satisfied. I knew I wanted to step up a level and increase the speed of play and competitiveness. Eventually I made my way to FC Stars ECNL. I consider this club my second family and realize the speed of play, competitiveness and overall environment is for me. There is always room for improvement and this club pushes me to be the best player I can be in every practice and game. This is the type of environment that I am looking to continue with at the college level.
Soccer is truly my passion. I have stuck with this sport for over 11 years and my drive to get better and love for the sport has only grown. It has not always been easy. This past season was especially tough and taught me that soccer was about not only athletic ability but also the connections you make with coaches and teammates. As a freshman I had the opportunity to be a part of the Minnechaug Regional High School Varsity Soccer Team and became a starter. Adjusting to play with a new team filled with girls much older and more experienced than me was very challenging but made me realize how much I love this sport. It has taught me about teamwork, commitment, sacrifice, and leadership. Qualities and skills all needed to be on a successful team but also to be successful in life. If I get the opportunity I would love nothing more than continuing to learn and grow through the sport I love the most, soccer.
