Ever since I was young, I've never been the type of kid to stay indoors all day and not do anything. My parents have always involved me in different activities and sports. I started playing soccer around the age of 5 and more and more I've taken an interest to the game. Over the years, I have learned about myself that I am a completely different person once I step onto the field. I am an aggressive but respectful player at the same time. My coaches and trainers have always commented on the leader like qualities that I possess. I see the positive in every situation that hits me, not just pertaining to soccer but life itself.
Recently, my team and I went to our first out of state tournament and of course, we had all been excited but we really did not know what to expect. The girls were twice our size and their speed was incredible.We lost every single game. As a result, I felt myself gain so much strength and endurance with this experience and this only made me want to push myself more. Like anyone, I know I have limits, but I try my best to expand those limits to make myself a better player. I also know where my priorities are and what comes first. My academics have always been a major part of my life. My goal ever since the 6th grade was to be an all honors student and with all the dedication I had for myself, it payed off. I hope to continue to remain in high honor classes and even stay in AP classes. In college, I will not only focus on my sport but my studies as well in order to make a good candidate for anyone's team. I make the best out of any obstacle that is thrown at me and I know that when the time comes to go to college, I will prove to any coach, and the school itself, all the abilities I have. I will show my strength, hard work ethic, positivity, dedication, and most important the amount of effort and heart I will give.
