Introduction: As a soccer player in Switzerland, I am highly motivated to join a US college team in order to get to know the country where this sport is so prominent for women and where I will be able to keep moving forward with my career path. I will not lose this unique opportunity since I always have the desire and the motivation to give my best in all of my academic and athletic engagements.

Education Goals: I am studying translation in Geneva so I am really interested in following studying any subject related with languages. I can speak Spanish, English and German and I would really like to improve my ability to speak various languages or to find any classes related with this field or with tourism.

Life Goals: I have always tried to take advantage of any opportunity that arises to me and, mostly when it comes to my sport if I manage to combine my studies, which are essential to me to maximize my chances of finding a suitable professional career, with my passion, I will never doubt about taking the opportunity. I consider I have a simple and sound mindset and I am willing to take some risks to achieve the best options that present in front of me. For now, I don’t know of what my future will be composed, but I do know that everything I will achieve will be thanks to my hard work and my great ambition.

College Goals: I have always been able to manage perfectly my schedule so that I always have sufficient time for my studies, even if I don’t have any free time for myself sometimes. I never failed an exam because of my sport obligations and vice-versa, I have never had to miss a game or a training because of my studies. I am proud of being able to give my best in everything that I commit and for that reason I think that time-managing in the US will not be my greater challenge. instead, I will take every measure to gain my place inside a team and prove myself as a key asset.

Why do you want to compete in College? I want to take the experience of playing in a college team to discover other visions of my sport. I know that I will learn many different skills that I will never be able to see in my country. I believe that I can reach a higher level if I just benefit of hard training and apt soccer facilities. Competing in such an environment is thus for me the best opportunity that I have never known and I could experience it surrounded with ambitious people who are as motivated as I am and who share my passion.

What makes you different? First of all, I know that one of my best qualities is that I am very generous in everything that I commit. I will always work hard and give all of me without any limit, pushing myself until the coach tells me to stop. I do it for myself of course, but mostly for the team, since I believe that a player belongs in the first place in a team and must think for the team before himself. Besides, I think a great player must never satisfied himself with his skills. It might be a shortcoming to say that I sometimes don’t believe enough in myself, but I am proud of this characteristic of mine. That is exactly what keeps me motivated no matter what happens, even in the bad moments.
