Playing university level soccer instilled values, such as being dedicated to achieving a goal and being a team player, which continue to serve me well as a lawyer. Team sports also taught me that perseverance and commitment are equally essential to success off the field.
After playing sports throughout my childhood, I continue to be involved in sports as a coach and volunteer for different teams. It is important for me to give back to sports organizations because sports is a key factor in helping young people to develop skills such as discipline and humility.
