I’ve played soccer for the majority of my life. My mom got me into it when I was young, and I played REC when I was 5. I’ve played ever since. I started playing select for a North Shore league when I was in 4th grade and played there for 2 years. In 6th grade I started playing for Snohomish and I’ve grown a lot with them in the past few years.  


I play center back and forward, I’ve played center back for the past few years and I’ve been a solid defender there but recently I’ve been put up front and I’ve been able to score for my team. It’s a rewarding feeling – scoring is especially when your teams have been struggling. I love shutting people down in plays. My favorite part of defense is not letting the other team score.  


My favorite team I’ve played on is my team this year, “07 RCL- girls.” but I also really like playing with the ‘05 team. They’re a well put together team and they play at a more intense level which is a good challenge. 


I wanna play for college, I’ve started my recruitment portfolio. It’s still new but I am ready to do my best as an athlete to add to it. And to try and draw attention from NCAA college recruiters. I haven’t thought about what specific college I’d like to play for, but I’d like to stay near Washington, like Washington State or University of Washington, maybe even Boise State.
