I have been playing soccer as long as I can remember. It has become a part of my every day life and has taught me the importance of hard work and commitment. The support of my mom, dad and brother has allowed me to become the person and player I am today. Without their support, I would have missed out on the experiences and friendships I have made with all of my current and past teammates. These memories will help me to grow and develop as a player, but more important, as a person.
As a student, I have been enrolled in all honors classes during my first three years of high school. I am enrolled in the Arbor View Career and Technical Education Sports Medicine Program to obtain a Certificate of Skill Attainment. While enrolled in these Honors Classes, I received an academic letter for maintaining a 3.5 or better and plan to graduate with an Honors Degree. Though the courses are at times difficult, they have taught me hard work pays off and will better prepare me for college life. My mom is an Occupational Therapist and my dad is a Police Officer and watching them help people in need and to get better has driven me to want to do the same. I feel pursuing a degree in Athletic Training/Physical Therapy will allow me to do this.
As a club/high school soccer player, I am focused and dedicated to my team. I feel I am coach-able and need little direction when being shown a new task or drill. As a defender, I know the importance of limiting mistakes and playing smart. I feel my consistent play will allow me to fit in any role on the field. Although I am somewhat quiet off the field, I am vocal on the field. I work well with all my teammates and bring a positive and fun attitude to everything I do. I have battled through injury, new coaches and winning and losing seasons. All of these experiences have only made me work harder and make my desire to succeed even stronger.
I have and always will give 100% both in school and on the field!
