Soccer has been a important part of my life since I was little. From a young age I was always wanting to challenge myself to compete against the best players and that drive for success has stayed with me. I apply my desire to compete not only on the field but also in the classroom which allows for me to strive for excellence. I am constantly trying to improve my skills and better myself even when I am struggling. I don't get discouraged easily which has also helped my athletic and academic careers. I try to be a leader for my team and classmates by leading by example and being a supportive teammate and friend. When I am not at school or soccer I am in the gym training to get faster and stronger. In my free time I caddy at a country club in St. Louis, and I enjoy spending time with my friends and family.
