Personal Statement

       Soccer is my passion, my driving force, my accomplishments, my failures, my quiet place, my arena, where I feel most at home, where I live!

          My name is Grace Gilmore, I am an attacking center midfielder, (who can also play as center forward and on either wing). I am 5’3, 122lbs, and not afraid to fight for the ball all the way to the ground. I love my team, I live for the game, and I have set high goals for myself, to include playing at the collegiate and national level.

          I am very lucky to be coming from a very close family.  We always root for each other and have high expectations for one another.  I started playing soccer when I was just 5 years old.  Three years ago I tried out for Classic and continue to be successful in ECNL. I train on my own time weekly, whether it's foot skill videos, shooting on my goal, or working out.  I know the only way to set myself apart is to do what others aren’t, on my own.

          How would my coaches describe me?  I've taken a few quotes from past correspondences with my coaches: " You have the mentality and confidence to take players on with the ball."  "You've got it! You're really starting to understand what the games all about." " You have a unique mentality and personality." " I believe I know the true measure of your intent, passion, skill, and desire to get better everyday. I love that about you Grace."  These are all things I've been told by coaches that give me another reason to work my hardest.  I have the utmost respect for my coaches, and value their opinions greatly.  As much as I want it, they want it for me too.

         My teammates would say I'm a tough competitor, willing to play any position on the field, that I never give up, that I have a positive attitude, and that I am always pushing myself and my team to our full extent.  My competitors might recognize me for my toughness, my speed, and my competitive nature.

        I enjoy volunteering in the gym with the special needs kids. I see them trying to reach their goals and it pushes me to reach mine. Some of these kids have to push themselves just to be able to throw a ball, and that’s okay.  Everyone has a different skill set and ceiling, but what makes us alike is we all want to feel successful. I want them to be successful! I also want my baby sister to be successful! She has epilepsy and has to fight everyday against the setbacks of uncontrolled seizures. I found this quote online, “she makes broken look beautiful, and strong look invincible,” and I think it fits her perfectly. I too want to be successful.

          I never want to make life harder on my parents, so I choose to be self-motivated. I was born a fast runner, so I train to be faster. I was born a good student, so I make straight A honor role in the gifted program. God gave me talents, so I want to use them. I want to be successful, and I want to “make strong look invincible.”
