I have honed my skills in soccer since I was in 6th grade. I not only play it, follow it, and watch it, but define part of myself from it. I would love to find a school opportunity where I can pursue my educational goals yet play a sport that I love. Since 7th grade I have trained young kids ages 5 through 12 in drills, shooting, dribbling, but most importantly, the joy of playing soccer. I would love to continue my own joy for the sport in college.
On the field I try to be a leader by encouraging others and their pursuits for excellence. I do not degrade nor pretend I know everything and always work to help team mates younger than me that become part of my team. I was honored my freshman year in high school when I earned the Peoria Christian Charger Way award for both soccer in the Fall and baseball in the Spring. The Charger Way Award acknowledges those students who are a Christian leader both on and off the field. Off the field, in school, I am respectful of others, am involved in key club, and go out of my way to help new students and be good team members in my class projects.
I work towards a balance between school, sports, and my family home life. There are times when one of those takes precedence, but I strive to remember that all 3 are important in my life. I grew up with my mom instilling in me the importance of good sleep, vitamins, stying in good physical condition, and eating right. I celebrate my victories and try to learn from my mistakes.
Service is such an important part of being not only a student athlete but a Christian. My high school requires service hours each year. I volunteer at my church, local shelters, and other outreach organizations. I help with pet rescues and am a member of my key club at school where we do lots of outreach in the community. It is important to give back to your community when able. I have lots of blessings and want to share any gifts or talents I have with people or animals in need.
