I became interested in soccer at an early age, and have progressed steadily from the recreational level to ECNL. I have played for three youth clubs along the way, advancing in level each time. Along the way I've had to learn not only about the game, but about how to compete, how to be a team player, how to win, and unfortunately, how to lose. I think having to deal with the adversity that game the presents has made me a better goalkeeper and a better person, able to shrug off mistakes, maintain my composure, and continue to execute to my ability. In the fall of 2019, I was diagnosed with Guillain Barre Syndrome which caused me to revisit all of my priorities, and has strengthened my resolve to recover, get back to the field, and reinvest myself in my sport.
My goals are to continue to develop as a person and as a soccer player when I take the next steps into college life. To do that, I am looking for a college environment that can challenge me athletically and academically equally. I believe I have the skills to succeed at both, and I also believe I have the leadership and character to draw the best out of my teammates and classmates to achieve great things.
