Personal Statement

Not your average soccer story!

I haven’t always played soccer or any sport for that matter. I was signed to an agency for modeling and acting at age 11 and began performing at small shows singing. But I quickly realized that wasn’t what I wanted to do.

At age 12, beginning of my 7th grade year, my father signed me up to play recreational soccer. I fell in love with the spirit of competition and all I knew is I wanted to win, but we never won a single game. During that 1st year I was spotted by a local club coach who asked my dad if I would be interested in guest playing in a tournament, but I would be playing up an age group. Apparently he saw potential. “Speed And aggression can’t be taught, she can learn everything else.”

At age 13, the next year, he (club coach) thought that I should try out for my age group. I tried out for Waco United 05g and made the team. The following  year I started every game, being the fastest on the pitch doesn’t hurt. Making the jump from recreational soccer to playing in one of the most competitive leagues in Texas (Lake Highland Classic ) was a big step and I was ready for the challenge.

Now I’m 14, our club season is just beginning, I’m a freshman in high school, and I am also enrolled as a freshman at our local community college. I will be graduating high school with my Associates degree. I run track as a sprinter. As an 8th grader I ran the 200m in 26.4 sec, the 400m 64.7sec, and I play volleyball as a setter/outside hitter. I'm not sure what exact major I will be pursuing in college but as of now I'm taking the medical pathway. I’m most thankful for lessons I’ve learned by losing. Most people, I assume, would have given up with all the disappointment and obstacles I’ve faced along the way by starting as late as I have. Although I am grateful for my natural athletic ability, my willingness  to overcome adversity, i believe, is my strongest asset.

Thank you for reading a little bit about me. Hopefully I can be an asset for you in 2023!
