I cannot express enough about how excited and happy I am to be continuing my soccer and academic journey at Illinois Wesleyan University. I have played soccer since I was 5 years old. Never did I imagine it would bring me here today. Throughout my soccer years, I have had many great coaches and teammates who have pushed and shaped me to become a better player. I’ve gained a lot of perseverance and growth as a person and athlete. Thank you for impacting my life and my game. I would like to especially thank my mom and dad for being my #1 fans. My parents have supported me through it all. I am thankful for their love, time, and dedication. I am grateful for the coaches at IWU for giving me this opportunity. I am very excited and definitely looking forward to what the future has in store for my next chapter of life.
