“I’ve been moving across the world since I was two years old, living in three different countries and six different states- all within Mexico, United States, and Argentina. Every time I moved I knew it would be temporary so I never got attached. It was especially hard on my sister. Every time we were told we were moving again, it hit her really hard. I, on the other hand, loved the diversity and meeting incredible people from all around the world. One thing kept me safe, though: I always knew that no matter where on the map I went, I could always find soccer. Even if I didn’t know the language, soccer was my way of communicating. The field is my own haven- a happy place I go to when I need to tune out or relieve stress. Without it, I think I would have been just as upset about moving as my sister. Now that I’ve moved to America, I am honored to have been part of a team that won the state championship. Whatever impact I had on that field I owe it to my parents for exposing me to different countries and allowing me to appreciate the one thing I can consider permanent: my love for soccer. ”
