My passion is soccer.
I've been playing soccer for as long as I can remember. My soccer opportunities in Mexico were limited, so once I came to the United States, I was able to play soccer on two different teams at a competitive level. I have been eager for new opportunities to grow as a player, in hopes of becoming a professional soccer player one day. I've been working hard to get opportunities to play as well as on the school soccer team where I know I can become a fundamental player for the team. I want to be a professional soccer player because I love soccer and want to be known and recognized for my actions sooner than later.
By attending US Sports Nike Soccer Camps, I'll be able to have the guidance and mentorship needed in order for me to reach my goal of being a professional soccer player. The camp will also help me with maintaining my self-confidence by inspiring me to be persistent on my pursuit of my passion.
Cesar will benefit from participating in US Sports Nike Soccer Camp as he is one of the most dedicated and open-minded individuals I've ever met, and that includes individuals of all ages and backgrounds. He is what I call a "pillar" in my classroom, holding up and supporting both his peers with his invaluable insight about the content and myself as an eager volunteer willing to take risks in his learning. Not to mention, he approaches content of any subject with a critical lens determined to understand its most complex workings.
I have absolutely no doubt that Cesar would benefit from the soccer camp which will push him to a new level of skill through top-rate challenges while encouraging professionalism, perseverance, and independence. Cesar could also very much benefit socially at camp, which will allow him to meet individuals of diverse backgrounds (which he truthfully does not gain regular access too) and create new friendships formed on common ground: soccer. Cesar would thrive as a team player, no doubt becoming a pillar for those who struggle and wish to gain confidence, as he does, while supporting those whose skills are more advantaged than his own.
When I first applied, I never thought I was gonna make it due to the high selectivity, but I had big faith because of my good scores. I was with my best friends, who are part of my family, when I saw the email telling me that I got accepted to the summer camp. I was so excited that I wanted to cry. I want to thank every single person that supported me since day one and everyone that donated to me. I will use this time wisely. I am sure that I have a great future because I am persistent and I wont give up on my dream. This will be the best experience of my life! Thank you everyone!
Thank you all for your fundraising efforts this year! We are happy to fund the remainder of your campaign!
