My name is Lucy Sokoloff from US, I fell in love with soccer when I was six years old.
I played for my neighborhood team. It wasn’t that competitive. When I got too old to play for my neighborhood team my mom asked if I wanted to play for a travel team. I was hesitant about it because I didn’t know if I was good enough. Would I make it in the team? But when I found out I made it in the team I was so happy.
I remember the first time I went to a soccer game. The USWNT was playing, and watching them play was so inspiring. That’s when I knew I wanted to become a professional player. I want to inspire people like they did.
When I play soccer I want to remind people. If you work hard and tell yourself when times get hard that you are strong and you can do anything if you put your mind too.
