These past few years have been extremely difficult for me in this sport. At one point I even thought my time with soccer was over. When I finally made the choice to switch clubs and find a different coach and team that would help me get out of this slump it switched everything around. I gained confidence, leadership, and my love for the game back. I was finally back to the girl I wanted to be. Being able to conquer this really showed my character, strength, and attitude. I have played this sport for 12 years and finally this past year during high school season my coach taught me more about myself than all my other coaches from the past years have combined. I learned that even when your hurting, tired, in extremely aggravating pain you still have more. Push through all those hardships because you have more. And when your brain is telling you your done, it's wrong because YOU ALWAYS HAVE MORE.
Over these next few years I have such a high hopes and dreams for myself because I always strive for my best. People tell me all the time that I'm crazy for believing that our high school team can win state one year, but I say it's possible and if you put your heart, soul, and mind to anything with 18 other young ladies trying to achieve the same thing, than I know anything is possible and we will get it done. I am relentless and will push and push and push until not only my job is done but everyone else, both on and off the field are done as well.
One day I will attend a college that will let me play the sport that I've played since I was a little girl picking flowers during games. And I know that same school with help me achieve my goals academically as well. Like I said earlier, my hopes and dreams are big, but my heart is too.
