Before I started high school I ask myself, “are you planning to go to college after high school ?” My immediate and initial response was “no”. College sounded so far and felt like a dream. Throughout my two years of high school, I seldom thought about college. I just didn’t see the end goal. I wanted to complete high school and figure the rest out. However, like most things in my life, it came back to soccer. I’ve been playing the game ever since I could walk. It has taught me so many life lessons such as collaboration (it is the world’s game), discipline, and commitment, among others. I saw some of my club teammates visiting colleges and excited about the prospect. This, along with conversations with my coaches, parents, and teachers, got me excited about college. I worked harder than ever before to make sure I become the first in my family to finish college. I am currently a freshman at Monroe College on a full scholarship. I am also on the men’s soccer team and majoring in Computer System Information.
