Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I love playing soccer, fitness, and freestyle tricks. I started posting videos of my training and the tricks as I’m learning them, and people would reach out and comment about how inspirational my content was, and how it motivated them to work harder.
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
I have been featured in ads for a really popular soccer training product. I was invited to film with them before I had any real following, and then they had my video in ads running all over social media. Some of the ads were viewed over a million times!
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
I recommend making sure training and working out remains fun! It doesn’t always have to be serious, and I like to take breaks from game training and stuff by doing freestyle and tricks.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My trainer Eddie Johnson, and my parents. I followed Eddie on social media for a long time. He inspired me to work hard, and I was doing the drills he was posting. At some point, he reached out and invited me to train with him! My parents booked a flight, and I had the opportunity to meet and train with Eddie. He helped me a lot, and he continues to do so to this day. My parents are very supportive, and they’ve done a lot to make sure I have good opportunities, and they push me to work hard, be humble, and be grateful for everything I have!
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I’ve been doing the soccer Instagram thing for about three years.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard”. A lot of people have heard this and agree with it. I like this quote because I think I’ve worked hard, and I will continue to work hard to achieve my goals because I’ve come a long way and become a much better athlete and player from putting in the work.
