Personal Statement

My name is Kian Hidalgo, and I recently turned 17 years old. Soccer has been a significant part of my life since kicking my first ball when I was just 3 years old. Soccer has become an almost essential aspect of my life, dedicating countless hours to developing my skills on and off the field. I've had the opportunity of playing for various teams in three countries, each of them contributing to my growth as a player and a person. The lessons I have learned through soccer extend beyond the field. Discipline, teamwork, confidence, and leadership are qualities that I strive to embody both as an athlete and as a student. Balancing my academic commitments with strenuous training schedules has taught me the importance of time management and prioritization. It has always been my dream to continue my soccer journey during college, where I can continue to pursue my passion for the scientific and engineering field. My goal is to strike a balance between excelling on the field and in the classroom, and I am fully committed to putting in the effort to achieve both. I am grateful for the opportunity to be considered for a soccer scholarship at a college level, and I am determined to make the most of this chance to pursue my dreams and contribute to the soccer program and the campus community.

    To whom it may concern:

    Saint Ignatius of Loyola said: 'In all things, to love and to serve,' a phrase that becomes the essence of every Javeriano and, consequently, of their families, because once you enter Javier, you never truly leave.

    Three years ago, I started working at Javier High School as a Language and Literature teacher, stepping into a different world and facing various challenges. In my second year, having adapted to the group and the dynamics of the institution, I was informed that a new student would be joining us from abroad, and Spanish was not his native language.

    Kian Gabriel Hidalgo McIntire is the kind of well-rounded student that schools aims to foster and that many institutions consider an ideal graduate, as he excels not only academically but also in politics and sports. Thus, these lines go beyond a mere recommendation for Kian, as any university would gain a valuable, competitive, brilliant, and warm-hearted individual. He has demonstrated this in his mastery of Spanish in less time than it takes to complete a university degree, in his outstanding academic and athletic achievements, and in his excellent participation in the student government, generating and promoting the proposals of the winning party.

    Undoubtedly, Kian is one of those students who will always be remembered for his numerous skills and qualities, but above all, for his nobility. Fair winds and smooth sailing to him.

    Sincerely,
    Karla Illescas
