At age six my mom signed me up for my town's soccer recreation program simply to help me find an interest. I did gymnastics, dance, piano, and guitar but the one that stuck is soccer. Soccer has taught me how to be passionate about something you really love. It gave me something to look forward to whenever we had a practice, game, or tournament. It taught me what hard work and dedication looks like. I've been connected to countless people because of the sport. The friendships, teammates, and colleagues I’ve had over the years have added so much to my life and who I am as a person and player.
While being athletically driven, my academics are very important to me, too. As a student at Teaneck High School, I take all honors classes and I've achieved Principal's Honor Roll for students with a 4.5 gpa or higher during my time at the high school. I enjoy all of my classes but I am particularly interested in, and good at, art and business. I would like to have a career as an interior designer and I plan to major in art and minor in business. Although soccer requires a lot of my time, focus, and energy, I am also a junior officer in H.E.A.L, a women's empowerment club at my school. I also coach a U11 girls team for my town's recreation soccer league and I am an active member of my church.
Playing in college has been a long-term goal of mine and is important to me. I look forward to continuing to learn and develop as a player. I believe that being on a team and the relationships I've had with my teammates and coaches has been a very positive aspect of my life. I hope to have the opportunity to experience this in college.
