Hello, my name is Fredy Vargas and I'm from the Bronx in New York. I was born in New York but my family is from Honduras. The school I attend is Cardinal Spellman high school and I'm a freshman. I started playing one of the most popular sports in the world and that sport is soccer. It all started when I was five years old and that was when I started to play soccer. At that moment when I felt the kick on the ball, I knew this would be the start.
When I first started to play soccer my dad had trained me very well in order for me to attend a soccer club. The first soccer club I attended was South Bronx United. I played at South Bronx United until the age of 9. Then after that, I played for an Albanian team named Dardania FC for two years. When I left Dardania, I felt I wanted to challenge myself a bit harder into the sport so my parents and I went researching for a great soccer club. I knew I chose the right club at the age of 12. Downtown United Soccer Club was the team I selected and I enjoy playing for this team. At first, the club had sent me to the B team meaning below the top team which was the A team. It was a challenge for me since I really wanted to be on the A team. It took me only one season for me to achieve my goal and all my hard work paid off because I'm on the team of the U15 DUSC BLUE team which is the A team. This year in my first year in high school I tried out for the soccer team. As I trained with older students I felt confident in that I will make the varsity team. At the end of the tryouts, the results came in and it turned out that I did make the Varsity team and from all the hard work it gave me a chance to show off skills earning me the spot in the starting lineup on the varsity team as a freshman.
Now the reason why I'm writing this is because I want to achieve one of the biggest goals of my life which is to go to Spain. Ever since I was little I would watch numerous games from my favorite soccer team. Looking up to players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, and Karim Benzema makes me like the best team in the world which is Real Madrid. This year on Downtown United Soccer Club are planning one of the most exciting trips yet which is to go to Madrid, Spain. Going to Madrid is like a dream coming true but not yet conquered. This will give me the opportunity to show my skills and talents around the world starting off with Spain. My dream is to play for Real Madrid one of the best teams in the world. It would also give me the opportunity to spend time with my teammates in Spain this summer but before I can do that I am offering help to achieve one of the biggest goals in my lifetime.
