Personal Statement

Soccer has been part of my life since my first memories. I want to play college soccer because I love the sport, want to continue to improve at it, and want to continue working and learning in the classroom and on the pitch at the college level.  On my club travel team, I play the 2, 3 or 4 positions.  On my Virginia ODP State team, I play the 2 or 3.  And on my high school team, I play the 2, 3, or sometimes the 9.

I was born in Russia, and was adopted at four months old. I’m one lucky person. My parents have always encouraged me to strive to do the very best at everything I do. My parents were both really good athletes growing up, so they instilled the values of hard work, teamwork, and preparation and love of sports. 

When I made my first travel team, I realized that I needed to increase my technical skills and my soccer IQ. I worked hard on juggling, moves, my shot, foot skills every week. I started watching the U.S. Women's and Men's National Team games, and English and German pro teams, and the World Cups. To improve as a player, I started attending Duke Women's Soccer camp each summer (4 times so far), University of Virginia soccer camps, and started attending college soccer ID camps as a freshman to push myself and increase my soccer IQ and competitiveness.

I also realized that I needed to become a better overall athlete, so as a freshman I started going to a professional strength and conditioning coach two times per week, which I continue to this day. That has really helped me with my speed, balance, core, agility and strength, which has brought my game to the next level.

In the 2018-2019 season, I was on the Virginia State ODP state pool. I played in the North Carolina ODP Friendlies in December 2018, the VA Friendlies in February 2019, and the East Region Championships in summer 2019.  I made the VA ODP district pool again in Aug 2019, and hope to make the VA ODP state pool again.  My SuperY team was undefeated this summer, and we are headed to the National Championships in Tampa in Dec 2019.  

One of the best things about soccer is that my teammates around me are incredibly hard workers and have pushed me to get better each day both on and off the pitch.  I will not be applying for financial aid in college, and simply want to get a great education and play soccer so that I can become a productive and competitive member of society.
