Favorite Houston Restaurant

Las Catrachitas


I’m concurrently completing a degree in Kinesiology and advancing my soccer education. My goal is to earn a USSF A license. My favorite soccer team is FC Barcelona because they are so exciting and beautiful to watch. Working with young players at RISE is helping get a much better understanding of the coaching concepts in my soccer courses. I am very inspired by the young players I coach and I learn a lot from them. I’ve discovered that applying the textbook and course materials from my university and soccer courses to actual live situations is very useful. I want to introduce the beautiful sport to players in a way that motivates them to love the game in more ways than one.
