I believe I am a team first player. I find as much joy in the perfect pass to my teammates as I do when I score. My coaches tell me I have an incredible work ethic as I practice 4-5 days a week, always looking to get better. I can play multiple positions when needed however, my strength is playing the 6, 8 and 2 positions. I can use both feet well and I am comfortable on both sides of the field.
While I love soccer and it is my passion, I take my academics very seriously. I should have enough credits hours upon graduating high school and completion of the AICE program to enter college as a sophomore. I currently hold a 4.6 weighted GPA and a class rank in the top 5% of my class.
I plan to major in Biomedical Engineering so that I can design athletic prosthesis for children. I work with some awesome kids every year with the Top Soccer Outreach Program who also love soccer but can't compete because of their disabilities. I believe that we can develop artificial limbs to enable kids to compete in many sports besides track. I want to be a part of that.
Thank you for taking time to view my profile.
I have been lucky to have the opportunity to be involved with the TOPSoccer program over the last three years. TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a community-based soccer program that is designed to meet the needs of children with physical and/or mental disabilities.
My role is to help teach these awesome kids the game of soccer but I believe they have taught me more than I have taught them. Working with challenged athletes is what inspires me to become a biomedical engineer. I want to help ensure that anyone can play the game that I have come to love; as well as any sport they choose regardless of their disability.
