I have been playing soccer ever since I was about 5 years old. It started in the basic AYSO soccer league. My father continued to push me more and more, sending me to various soccer camps at different locations. I would never had expected that at the age of 13, at one of the many soccer camps, to be scouted by a club soccer coach. My parents and I had no idea what club soccer was until this coach approached me and asked me to play with his team. This had began my career as a soccer player. Slowly, I continued to better myself and worked to become captain of my club and high school team. During one of my big college showcase tournaments, The San Diego Surf Cup, I was scouted once again by a soccer coach from Vassar College up in New York. I traveled and visited the school to see if I wanted to join but, unfortunately, it was not the school for me. Luckily, I was accepted to CSULB and joined the club team. Still to this day, my father continues to check up and make sure I am continuing to push myself to always strive for perfection.
