What makes you different?

I am a humble person who is very hard-working, disciplined and motivated. I am a well rounded athlete, fast, strong, good finishing ability, and many more. I am also a team player, I always have a smile on my face while playing and just enjoy the sport overall. I enjoy uplifting others and motivating the team to always do better.

Why do you want to compete in college?

Competing in college is a great way to start off a players soccer career because you not only compete at a high level but you also get an opportunity to obtain a degree.

College Goals?

My college goal is to obtain a degree in exercise science and to compete at the national tournament and hopefully win.

Anything else we should know?

I started playing soccer at the age of 6 and one thing that has always been a big part of my life is God. I know that without Him I would not be where I am today. I really learnt a lot because I grew up in a household where all my brothers play soccer and this has really helped me to become the soccer player I am today.
