Because I really, really want to play soccer in college is the short answer. I am a team oriented person. I thrive when I work with my teammates in that kind of environment. Playing sports in high school has made me a better, more focused student and I know that I will do better with the academic challenges of college if I am challenging myself on the field.
For several years I have been volunteering as a student teacher at my karate dojo assisting in teaching children's classes. On the field I was appointed as one of the 2018 varsity captain and actively direct my defense during games.
Being in good health, both mentally and physically, is critical to being a successful athlete. As a 3rd degree karate blackbelt I've learned to incorporate the mental game into my physical game which, I think has strengthened my skills in the net. I do what any smart athlete does, I eat healthy food, work out in the off season and strive to improve my skills.
Currently a participant in the Interact Club, a high school community volunteer group.
