Soccer fed me knowledge, gave me an aesthetic perspective at everything else around me, and best of all, the ability to love doing something over moderately without getting tired of it. As I've said, I was lucky enough to find my true talent at the age of four but it was never easy growing up. I had a cornucopia of hobbies/talents surrounding me but none could grab my attention like soccer did. I'd be lying if I said soccer is the only thing I could ever love. Sure, drawing seemed to have been taking me places and yes, I was okay at plenty of the other sports but soccer simply became a passion, not just something one would do in order to get rid of their boredom.

Not only is he working hard every practice and every game, but he now realizes how lucky he is to have the ability to play once again. “I see john working as hard as he can on the field but I also notice that while he is giving everything he has, he is in a lot of pain,” said Andrew Cornwall ’14.

It may be a cliché, but soccer was my life growing up! In Bob Greene’s essay “Cut”, he explains how being cut from a basketball team in 7th grade made him feel, and how it shaped him into the person he is today. He describes the feeling of inadequacy by not being good enough. Bob Greene portrays how that event made him stronger, “never to allow someone to tell me that I’m not good enough again” (Miller, “Cut” 86). As a young child, I lived my life to play soccer.
With this, I mean, that this game requires more than just goal posts and legs. Being the captain of the Senior Soccer Team at G.D. Goenka World School, I have learnt more than just how to play this game. This game has taught me skills that make me who I am. When I put my feet on the turf, it is unlike my usual steps; these have more courage, more determination, more optimism and most of all more responsibility.
The Second Pillar The way I define service is the coordinated effort to benefit a community or the lives of the people in it through hard work and dedication. It is the giving of time and work in turn for the opportunities given to you. This can be accomplished through a variety of activities such as sports and scholastic competitions. Helping out is one part of service but I believe another part is improving your school's reputation with athletic and academic achievement. In particular, soccer has been a large part of my high school career and it has allowed me to participate in group community service work as well as a chance to win titles for our school.

It was from this point forward that the simple gesture of kicking a ball around further developed into perfecting the applied rules of the game with admiration and amusement. My father, always one step ahead of the game, observed my profound skills and immediately looked into ways in which I could get recognized. It was he who enrolled me into a debuting association in order to get me started.
I don't see how the soccer team does this everyday. Everyone knows soccer is a running sport, but I don't think everyone knows how much RUNNING is actually involved in the sport. So I could understand better, I spent a period running with the JV team and then a period practicing with Varsity. It was exciting, embarrassing, and eye opening to how much the team must go through to prepare for a game. I haven't been able to run for a
