What makes you different?
I have a deep passion for soccer, and when I watch games, I don't just focus on the goals scored. I pay close attention to players who occupy the same position as me on the field, observing their movement, coordination, and other aspects to expand my soccer knowledge. Playing soccer games myself has also been a valuable source of learning about various players and clubs. Among them, my favorite club is Manchester United. In fact, I have been fortunate enough to visit both Manchester United and West Ham United stadiums, experiencing the thrilling atmosphere of European soccer firsthand.
While soccer is a significant part of my life, I am equally dedicated to my academic pursuits. I strive to strike a balance between my studies and soccer, ensuring that they complement each other rather than conflict. I believe in pursuing a well-rounded development, and thus, I have a wide range of interests. Apart from soccer, I enjoy watching movies and traveling. Additionally, I play the guitar, engage in running, and swimming. By cultivating various hobbies, I aim to become a versatile individual with a diverse set of skills and experiences.

I believe that being exposed to diverse perspectives and training methods in the university environment will contribute to my overall development as a student-athlete. By embracing the challenges and drawing inspiration from my peers, I am confident that I can continually improve and strive for excellence both on and off the field.
In college, my primary objective is to enhance my football skills while maintaining a strong focus on my academic performance. I am committed to working diligently and overcoming challenges in order to complete my university journey with outstanding grades. I recognize the importance of balancing my dedication to football with a strong commitment to my studies. By effectively managing my time and prioritizing my responsibilities, I aim to excel both on the field and in the classroom.
