Recruit Profile
Athletic, quick, driven, and versatile player with a competitive, positive attitude.

I have been playing soccer for as long as I can remember. Growing up in Africa, I was constantly around the game, playing with my brothers before I could talk. Soon after I moved to the US in 2011, I joined my first team, where my dad coached. A few years later, I joined the travel team FC Casa, which transitioned into Maryland Rush, and then Liverpool FC. I was with this team for almost 8 years, many of which I was the leading goal scorer with the most assists. Here I demonstrated my natural leadership and versatility - in most games I went from right midfield, left midfield, forward, and center midfield - wherever I was needed. I am most known for my impactfulness and reliability when it comes to the game: driving down the sidelines to cross the ball in the box and sprinting however far needed to recover and prevent other teams' goal-scoring opportunities.

I made Richard Montgomery High School's varsity soccer team as a freshman. I was a starter, played multiple positions, in the midfield as well as forward, and helped my team in achieving an 11-2 record.

This past February, I switched to Metro United Soccer Club in the GA, determined to push myself even more, with higher-level coaches and teammates.

I pride myself on my athletic, academic, and social balance. I have an unweighted GPA of a 4.0 and this year I am taking AP Government and all other Honors courses (except my elective). Next year I am planning on taking several AP classes with a mix of IB. I challenge myself academically, choosing unfamiliar courses to find my interests and passions. I am part of the Lifting Lives club at my school and am currently looking into volunteer-opportunities for after the pandemic.
