Recruit Profile
Self-motivated, disciplined, determined and aggressive multi-sport athlete. Team player and leader on the field. Coachable and always working hard to improve goalkeeping skills and game awareness. Excellent student, creative artist.

I have been a competitive soccer player since I was 7 years old. In the summer of 2019, as a rising freshman, I was asked to try out for my high school field hockey team as a goalkeeper. I'd never played field hockey, and only occasionally soccer goalie, but I am confident in my athletic abilities, aggressive and unafraid, and always up for a new challenge. I earned the spot as varsity goalkeeper. My first tournament was two days later. My coaches immediately recognized my raw, natural talent for the position, and I have become a strong and dominant goalie in just two years. In 2021, I was selected for the San Diego Eastern All-League First Team. I continue to work hard on my skills, build game awareness and know I have the talent to play at the collegiate field hockey level.

Academically, I am a 4.0 student taking honors and AP classes. I am in the four-year biomedical pathway at University City High School, but also have a creative side that I express through drawing. I am considering exploring an art, graphic design or computer animation degree in college. I have volunteered as a student counselor for a summer sports camp for kids that I attended growing up. I also mentor the new, youngest goalies in my field hockey club when my personal training schedule allows me to attend their sessions.

In my free time, I love to surf, draw, read books, teach myself French and guitar, play with my dog and travel with my family to explore new places in the US and abroad.
