Tell us how your soccer journey began: My older cousins played and I wanted to be like them. One game our goalkeeper got injured and I got shoved in goal. Never looked back since.
What do you love about soccer? I love the feeling when you win.
What is some advice a coach has given you that has stuck with you? Coach Rob Wilcher told me after I made a save in practice to try and catch it. After trying and succeeding at catching a similar shot it showed me that I can handle harder shots than I thought I could.
