For as long as I can remember soccer has been a staple in my life. Through out my years of playing, my teams have influenced me as a player in different ways. On my travel team, I was a leader, a captain. I would motivate my teammates with confidence and tried to push them to be the best they could be on and off the field. For my club team when I first started I was one of the youngest on the team. I wasn't the best player on the team but that didn't stop me, it motivated me. I worked hard and went that extra mile to become a player that made the difference. From these experiences, I learned that I am a hard worker, coachable and some who can encourage people. I have been playing soccer since I was three years old and haven't stopped loving the sport since. Playing at a college level has always been a lifelong goal of mine. I plan on achieving this goal by working hard to continuing to get good grades and improving my game. I am a hard-working student and athlete who will go the extra mile to achieve my goals. I am also a very coachable, many of my coaches have used this word to describe me because of how I can easily be taught a new skill and how I am always looking to improve my skills. I plan on attending a college where I am challenged both as an athlete and as a student. I love to learn new things and I enjoy working hard academically. I always strive to do my best and won't give up no matter the challenge. I am a diligent student and a driven athlete, even when the tasks are challenging.
