JV as freshman - Co MVP
My family has supported my decision to go to college. In fact they actually really want me to go to college and to be the first in our family to do so. Playing sports might be an advantage to get to college by getting recruited. In the back of my mind I know I want to play soccer as my career but there are always doubts. Not enough money, no time, and so on. Getting recruited could really help me get to places I want to be whether it be a great college that helps me find and interest in a certain field or the recognition to get to follow my passion of being a professional player and fulfilling my college experience.
As a midfielder, you have to take on certain roles in order to get your team to succeed in a game. Taking on such roles is very difficult for me but I try my hardest to voice my ideas out to people who might be open to understanding them. My team sometimes may have trouble lifting their heads up when losing by a couple goals in the game, but I try to show them my support with simple gestures and compliments to make them feel confident. Really my goal isn’t just to win games, but to actually feel like we played our best and tried our hardest even though we lost.
To really pursue my healthy athletic performance, I try to have a healthy and positive mind. Dealing with negative thoughts in your mind can really affect your daily work and especially your game on the field. I’ve had my instances where I was just out of it and could not play well because my mind was foggy. To avoid these bumps, I meditate when I can and keep my life organized and healthy.
I am involved in a club called We Club, which gathers together to improve the community by doing special events and fundraisers to spread awareness about a certain topic. All the proceeds from the fundraiser goes to a special organization. Recently, our club did a coin drive to help support a school that was affected by Hurricane Irma. This is important to me because actions like these are the ones that really make a difference in the world and the only way I could give back to the community and world I live in.
