“I’m from New South Wales in Australia and came to America to play soccer. I’ve been playing for 11 years. I had to make a profile of myself filled with videos and pictures, so colleges could recruit me. I faced my biggest struggle when I hurt my arm and couldn’t play for half the season. One thing I couldn’t live without is my mom. My motivation in college right now is knowing I get to go home in May. I get homesick a lot. I’m the first person in my family to attend college and travel outside the country. I plan to get my associates in early childhood education next spring and open my own daycare. I already have my certificate in business, retail and hospitality.”
