Personal Statement

Growing up, soccer has always been my passion. So much so that I somehow always found a ball at my foot. This relationship and attachment to this sport has evolved me not only as a person, but as a teammate, a brother, and a son. It has taught me so many meaningful life lessons that without it I wouldn’t be the same person as I am today. So many days of hard work and practice let my competitive spirit, leadership, and determination come to light. And without the role models, I met playing soccer(Parents, players, and all) I would no longer be in such a position where I can influence my community by playing the sport that I love most. Soccer has truly engulfed my life. And because of the sport, I am looking to pursue the dream my younger self had, playing soccer and studying sport at the collegiate level. I am interested in majoring in Exercise Science and Kinesiology. This is because of my eagerness to help my peers and loved ones with their needs off the field, and also from my competitiveness to also try to gain an edge on the field with knowledge about my body that not many others have. This major is very rigorous, but I am already challenging myself in my current school. I am enrolled in Dual Enrollment and am on track to receive my AICE Diploma before graduation. I push myself in the classroom, just as I would on the field. Therefore I believe I am ready to take the next step in my athletic and academic career in college.
