Competing at a high level has taught me how to balance multiple activities simultaneously and achieve success in the classroom and on the field. Soccer has also given me the passion to work hard at something that I desire to achieve and to always look for ways to improve and excel, in all aspects of my life. In addition, it has given me the confidence to lead in different ways, both on and off the field, in areas such as tutoring/mentoring at school, being chosen as a supervisor at my job, and coaching younger kids through my soccer club. I have also learned the importance of training on my own, as well as putting together small groups of boys and girls to train and play with during the off season. I look forward to continuing to train, play, and grow at the college level.
