My name is Alexandra Galarza and I am currently a junior at John P. Stevens High School. I aspire to be a part of a growing and reputable collegiate program where I can play along and be challenged by my teammates, further my skills athletically and academically, and make a significant impact to the program. Being surrounded with my older siblings that competed at the collegiate level, has inspired me to continuously work diligently to improve the way I play today to succeed at a well-known program. I have been an active soccer player for 12 years where I have successfully grown to play in both the outside midfield and outside back positions. I have grown to become a well-rounded individual through my intense focus on my athletic and academic activities/endeavors. My success in the classroom has shown my work ethic and critical thinking skills which are important to succeed athletically and academically. I set myself apart from other players by being able to play in a team atmosphere, having speed and making plays.
