I feel succeeding at being a student-athlete makes me a better person to be a team player as well as be competitive. This prepares a person for the real world after college to keep trying and never give up.
At high school, I was on student government freshman year. Unfortunately, soccer and track interfered prohibited with other after school activities. On a student level, I take initiative on class group projects.
On the pitch, if I am the newcomer, I try to observe and provide support where necessary. Once I move to a leadership role, I provide encouragement and direction to the newer players on the team.
There is a balance between academics and sports. Although I train with my team, I also pursue strength training and personal one on one training to improve my individual skills. I also have gueted and played on many teams to learn styles of coaching, formations on the pitch, as well as working with individuals. Most importantly, I set time each day for my school studies, taking advantage of any open time I have including finishing my school projects ahead of schedule.
I have trained younger girls in soccer to become better players. I have raised money for the Special Olympics for the last two years.
