I love the competition that soccer brings. It is a true team sport and you have to have the continuity and teamwork in order to succeed. As having been starter on my high school soccer team since the 7th grade I looked up to the upperclassmen as mentors and role models. I now find myself in a leadership role on my team. An injury in the 7th grade, while at the time was devastating, made me realize how much I love the sport. I have been determined ever since to out work my opponents to make sure I have the tools to succeed. I want to not only succeed on the playing field but in the class room. My team has made back to back playoff appearances for the first time in school history. I feel like we are leaving a legacy for other girls to aspire to. I like being part of a team for those reasons.
I also participate in cheerleading, basketball, track, and dancing while maintaining a good GPA in the classroom. I volunteer 25 hours of community service to give back to my community to make it a better place. I am a very self motivated individual, with good character and I am looking for a program that fits these types of traits. I know I have the capabilities to be a student/athlete for your program that will be someone that your program desires.
