When I was first introduced to competition/athletics I loved to play, the feel of working hard and seeing reward, and the benefits of being a part of a team. I was raised in a home with both my mother and father having experience playing at the Division I college level, and I quickly knew I wanted to strive to compete at this level in soccer. I believe in a multi-sport experience helping to improve my soccer game, with emphasis on the student aspect of student-athlete. I also place focus on my education and opportunities to achieve high levels in the classroom along with sport. In February 2021, I lost my uncle unexpectedly. He was not only a second father to me, but he also was a D1 collegiate athlete. He always believed in the benefits of sport for not only development of a lifetime of friendships, but the life lessons it offers both on and off the field. He believed in my talent and was my biggest fan, and will always remain in my heart as I drive to succeed in my goals. This year life has offered me many challenges that continue to mold me into the student-athlete I strive to be on and off the field. I look forward to continued opportunity to grow and improve.
