I have always had a very strong work ethic; it is something that has been instilled in me from the time I was very young working in my family’s business. I now attend Stony Brook University studying business management while working 25 hours a week. It is challenging, however, I feel that if I succeed it will only make me that much stronger. I have been playing soccer since I was 4 years old. It wasn’t until 6 years ago I began refereeing and it has really been a dream job for me. I plan to take over my family business when I finish my education, and that is what drives me to succeed in everything that I do.
