I began playing soccer at age 5, I have continued because of how much I love the game. Now, at 15 years old, going into my sophomore year of high school, I want to continue to be a student-athlete and play soccer. I just finished my first year of high school varsity soccer with a starting spot as a freshman. I was fortunate enough to earn 2nd Team All-League honors amongst basically all juniors and seniors except for my teammate. For the past 5 years, I have had a highly experienced club coach that has helped me bring my love for soccer to a whole new level. He has taught me to build the technical skills that I need individually, while also helping our team to understand how beneficial team-work is and how to approach the tactical part of the game. This has built my confidence in all parts of the game. I was fortunate enough to be nominated as a leader of our team, because of the way I can see the field as well as talk to and support my teammates. I believe if I continue to work towards soccer, and also school, I have the ability to play at the top college level. I feel I have the ability to play Division I Soccer, but I want to find the school that fits me both athletically and academically.
