I've been playing soccer since I was five years old, and I've always strived to get better every time I touch the ball. When I first started playing, I never knew the work habits I would develop as a soccer player would impact my life so greatly. Whether putting these habits into use at school, on the field, or other things, soccer has developed me into who I am. Soccer has taught me how to work as a team and fight as a whole through challenges. Working as a team has exposed me to more than just working together, but the importance of it. I work hard on and off the field and put in the extra work. I challenge myself in soccer and academics, and I set goals that I am determined to reach. I am truly grateful I have the opportunity to play the game and am able to learn so much from it.
