"In order to succeed, you must first be willing to experience failure."

I surround myself with the people who have a good attitude and positive influence on my life. Your friends should push you towards greatness, not tear you down.

Soccer became an important part of my every day life in high school. During that time a made many friends.

"Hard work does not necessarily guarantee success, but no success is possible without hard work."

I pushed myself everyday not only as a player, but as a hard working individual as well.

"Surround yourself with people who build you up even when it would be easier for them to tear you down."

All the players on the team were very close and we were all friends who could count on each other to be there.

"True teams are made when you put aside individual wants for collective good."

I built life long friendships being part of a team and surrounding myself with the people who had a positive influence on me as an individual.

At the end of my senior year I decided I wanted to play soccer in college and was supported by my friends, coaches, family, and teammates.
I had the opportunity to work at a credit union during my senior year of high school. I built a professional relationship with the credit union and their employees. I enjoyed the people I worked with and they ultimately influenced me to study business.
I chose to continue my studies and play soccer at the University of findlay.
I am now part of a team once again and working to develop myself as a professional. I currently study Sport and Event Management and I am working to develop even more professional relationships.

"Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do."
