I have been playing soccer since I was 5 years old. I started playing goalkeeper when I was 9 and it has been my primary position since 2012.
During my time playing goalkeeper, I have learned that I need to always be active, even if I’m not directly involved in the play. Since I am playing behind my team, I can better see plays develop and help direct my team and take on a leadership role. I practice hard and I play hard so I give my best effort to my team. I have also learned that there is always room for improvement and I appreciate when my coaches give me direction on how to play my position better.
After high school, I want to attend college to study accounting and, even though an education is my main focus, I would also love to play soccer for the college I attend.
I am involved in my school’s ARK (Acts of Random Kindness) Club, which conducts activities and projects to help cheer up fellow students, and Cure Finders, which raises funds and awareness for those affected by cancer.
