Q: At what age did you start playing soccer? 

A: I started playing when I was eight years old.

Q: How do you prepare for soccer in the off-season?

Q: Is it difficult to balance school along with the other sports that you do? 

A: Oddly enough, it is not really hard for me to balance school along with the sports that I do. I am organized and make time for school to finish my assignments and then go to soccer practice.

Q: What do you usually do to prepare before a game? 

A: I usually have a good meal then listen to workout music and I do not let anyone distract me from my mindset.
