Expert Opinion

There are certain things I did in my career that allowed me to become a professional soccer player. Rising above challenges, recognising small victories, and building my resilience - those three aspects have allowed me to take things in my stride and grow as a person. Once you’re able to do those three things, you’ll be able to rise in any career or path you choose to pursue.
