In my Skokie I practice my soccer skills on the Bessie Rhodes field.

Soccer is my life.

I play for a travel team called the Chargers.

My position is midfield so I have to play both offense and defense.

I like to work on my passing and dribbling with Ion after school.

We know each other from Walker, where we went to elementary school together.  

When we practice we take turns dribbling and trying to get past the other person.

I feel the ball on the outside of my foot as I get ready to strike the ball in the air.

My kick unleashes the ball like a cannon.

Soccer makes me feel like I rule the world.
