Here’s the thing about my life until now: I’ve been certain about a lot.
I’ve known since I was 9 that all I ever wanted to do, or be, is a professional soccer player.
I’ve been clear that my top priority in life since then has been becoming the absolute best I can be.
My love for the game has never wavered (except for my 12th birthday soccer party, after which I cried and decided none of this was worth it, because my friends Matt and Bernard were so much better than me).
All my decisions have been dictated by my consuming desire to become an expert in my field. And that has endured.
