As athletes, we always feel invincible. No matter what I was told, I was fully convinced that a serious injury can’t happen to me. One day, when I least expected it, it happened to me. During my last soccer game as a freshman, I moved wrong. That one step challenged me with the idea of never playing again.
Around the age of 7-11 I remember I would always play kick play at school. I would always be the person who rolls the ball for the other team to kick. I remember one time the ball was rolling in front me and I was trying to pick it up but another person ran up behind me to try to get the ball but instead of that he step and smash on to my finger. That accident left a small scarf on my index finger for life.
Almost Making It Happen I expected to get a few bruises, but not a getting a concussion. Before the soccer game, my idea of a concussion was getting bumped in the head, receive headaches, and it would heal up in a week and then you would go back to the way you were. I was wrong. At times, concussions can be deadly, and if you have them more than once, it will decrease your chance of keeping your brain healthy and surviving. Concussions can also give you migraines and make you dizzy.
I have picked my backyard because when I was younger it was my favorite place to be at. I used to go out there and play any kind of game, but my favorite thing was playing soccer. My feelings about going out there was something amazing, some other kids would rather play video games and doing some other stuff, but all I wanted to do was to go out in my backyard and just enjoy there. Just like my love for soccer has changed even though I still love it but it is different, and i do not really play out there anymore.
I have been playing soccer since before I could even walk. In fact, I joined my first soccer team at the age of five. Soccer is something I have always loved and been passionate about. When I was on the co-ed recreation league teams I was one of the only girls on my team, so I had to compete with boys who doubted me and thought I was weak. I worked hard during practice and out of practice to become better and, eventually, I became more aggressive than them.
It was a cold brittle day on January 10,2014 at 2:00 p.m in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey. My teammates and I and I were warming up for our soccer game. Our team name was called“Rapids and we have three wins, one tie, and four losses. All of a sudden, the referees called us to the sideline to check on our equipment.
My Great Passion I have lived in five different countries. Moving each time meant adapting to different places and making new friends. I was born in India and moved to UAE, Azerbaijan, Canada, and finally to the USA. The most exciting thing I done was transitioning to Canada. I have lived in many places but moving to North America was the most amazing because of the diversity.
The event that has stayed with me is joining the soccer team 2 years ago in Rocky Mount. That memory stays with me because it has changed my life. It changed my life because I lost weight and I also made new friends. Before I started playing soccer I was chubby and I was out of shape.

Slippery Soccer Struggle It was game day and the whole team was pumped. Today we were ready to take down our rivals, Maquoketa. We all got nervous when we heard that the forecast called for heavy rain with possible thunderstorms. We knew that playing in the rain would be a lot more difficult, but that we could handle it.
Being a captain in soccer whether it's professional soccer or high school soccer is an honor to be. Professional players such as Andres Iniesta, Carles Puyol, Sergio Ramos, and the player that inspired me to play soccer Paolo Maldini have all shown why being a captain is such an honor to be. Now I have been given the honor to be varsity captain for My high school soccer team but I wasn't just given to me because I was a senior no, it was given to me because of my hard work and dedication to become a better soccer player and to become a leader. Freshman year was a big learning process for me.
