Soccer has pushed me to grow as a person and has helped shape me into who I am today. I have played on numerous club soccer teams throughout central Indiana, and I have also played high school soccer; thus, exposing me to many new players. So, I have had to work with numerous personality types and have learned to communicate appropriately with each one. Bonding with teammates builds trust between one another and helps the team function to its best capabilities. After learning about and befriending teammates, I am able to become a better leader for the team. Soccer has taught me many responsibilities of being a leader, and when or when not to be a leader. Leading by example is a key leadership trait I have learned from soccer. By just trying
People in this magnificent, ever changing, and complexity of a world seeks to find out who they are in this life. Not all are capable of understanding what they love; their passion.

Soccer is my identity;I honestly feel I can connect to the world through it.

When I first thought about how soccer impacted my life, nothing really came to mind. I was that kid who mostly looked forward to the end of the game snacks and bringing around the goal jar. But when I actually began thinking about more about playing soccer I realized that soccer was the first place where I was fully submerged into something completely new. I learned how to make friends, how be a leader, and how to have good sportsmanship. These are all things that have made me into the person I am today and it all began on the soccer field.

Having only one soccer club in Bend to play competitively on and having a relatively small population put me playing with almost the exact same group of girls in the club as I grew up. This also left me knowing everyone who plays soccer and consequently when I got to high school soccer, I was still with the same girls. We had been playing with each other for 7 plus years and had become an incredibly close unit on and off the field. Some of my closest friends came from playing soccer. Soccer had helped me break out of my shell socially and provided an outlet for stress relief. My life revolved around soccer.

One day, I was on the soccer field, playing the game I love and I just about scored a goal but the goalie stopped the ball. Then, the goalie proceeded to punt the ball and I started to run backwards and did not see the ball coming towards me. Also, there was a girl running next to me and when I went to turn around, the ball came crashing down on my head and so did the girls elbow and also the ground. Needless to say, I had a full blown concussion, but I continued to play the rest of the game because I didn’t think there was anything wrong with me. Later that day, I started to feel nauseas and along came the terrible headaches. Subsequently, I had to go to the hospital because my concussion was so bad that the doctors thought I might have cracked my skull.
Being shoved to the ground and coming up with a mouthful of turf and a bloody nose isn’t the ideal way to spend a friday night, but for me, it's something I put blood, sweat, and tears into. Soccer has been a passion of mine since my father dropped me off at the local YMCA when I was at the tender age of four. Spending all of my free days for thirteen years running after a soccer ball is arguably what made me into the person I am today. Unity, tenacity, passion and pride have all been morals that are valued within the sport and in my own philosophy. I have explored places I’d never give a second thought to because my sport took me there. Friends I had made came from the sport I played. I never ended up asking for friends to come over because to me, practice was hanging out with my friends, doing an activity with a purpose.

I worked hard during practice and out of practice to become better and, eventually, I became more aggressive than them. My eighth-grade year, I tried out for the school’s co-ed soccer team and was confident that I would make the team. During the three hard days of try-outs, I pushed myself to improve each day and received several compliments from the coaches. On the last day, the head coach pulled me aside to tell me

Soccer brought me out my kind of addiction to video games which were my life during my childhood. Soccer got me outside and around people more to socialize.
