I tend to think about my future a lot. What I mean by this is I tend to think about what high school I am going to, college, what I am going to study, what degree, my career, where I am going to live etc.
The high school I am thinking about going to is Freehold Township high school. I know that there is a lot of other higher level high schools which I would love to be in, but with the big jump to high school I don't want it to be bigger and more difficult than it already is. What I mean by this is high school is challenging with the type of learning and new experience so I would like to stay with the people I know and that I am comfortable with so that can ease into it. I'm not positive with what courses but I want to make it into all honors.
I've always wanted to go to Monmouth or Princeton University. I like these colleges because I always think about soccer, like always. And if a college has a good soccer team then that's where I want to be. I have seen both of these teams play and I think they have a very good way of playing and a good skill set, so that's where I want to be. I also know that these school create a good education, that's where I want to be as well. Now I do know that these colleges are hard to get into, but I think if i work hard I can achieve my goal.
I love math. Math is definitely my favorite subject in school, (besides gym and art). So in college I want to study math because I think that subject suits me well and it is what I like the most. I want to end my college with 4 years of study and graduate with a bachelors degree.
As I said before I love love love soccer and my college is based on mostly soccer. Now, my career is as well. I want to become a pro soccer player. I want to be on Sky Blue FC and then move onto USWNT. If that doesn't work out then I've always said that I would love to be a kindergarten teacher. I love working with little kids and I've already had an experience as a fifth grade ambassador (tutor). I love working with little kids and my family says I'm good with them as well. They already want me to start babysitting, (which I would love).
Where I want to live
I want to live in California, Hawaii, Vermont or Colorado. But those choices either get no snow or pretty much just snow. And also I want to stay close to my family. So I'm not really sure yet.
