I have been playing soccer for about 10 years. Starting out in rec leagues led me to love and appreciate the game. I began playing club around the age of 8 where I focused on soccer on a more competitive level. Although in my second year of club soccer I initially made the B-team, I pushed myself to prove the coaches wrong. They brought me up to the A-team later that very season. Ever since then I have strived to bring everything I can to the playing field. For my sophomore year of club, I set a goal for myself to make the Director's Academy team the following year. Through my determination, I succeeded and will be playing for the D.A. my junior year. Being a student-athlete has forced me to balance my school and soccer life which has made me a more well-rounded individual. I always give my all, whether it is school or soccer. My aim is to pursue my love of soccer in college while working on a pre-med degree.
