Other informationMULTI TALENTED
She played football [soccer] for the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in the United States of America. "Soccer taught me the value of teammates and how you can use each other to push past your limits, while still wanting everyone to succeed. My college career had many ups and downs and two ACL tears and four surgeries was definitely not in my plan when I first stepped foot on the field. However, soccer showed me that no matter what life throws at you, it is your job to do everything in your power to not only get back up but be better and stronger than you were before. There were no excuses because you saw the adversity many athletes faced every day and these athletes continued to power through. This determination comes in handy on those hard work outs that nobody wants to do because you remember what you and your teammates overcame, and it puts everything in perspective."
