What makes you different?

I play soccer since I can remember , I always walked around with a ball on my feet , so I have been conciliating both my academic and athletic sides since a very young age , performing well both on and off the field. I consider myself a team leader as I have always been one of the captains of my teams. I leave my soul on the field in order to help the team achieve their goals. I am very ambitious and passionate about winning.

Why do you want to compete in college?

Competing in college gives me the opportunity to continue to develop my academic and athletics skills in a very high level. I want to help my team getting as many trophies as possible. Being at college also gives me the opportunity to get know different cultures and realities which will only make me a better human being

College Goals?

My goal competing at college is to turn pro through the MLS SuperDraft. On the way I want to complete my degree and get as many rings as I can.
