do you think will win the World Cup? Who will you cheer for since Guatemala
isn't in the tournament?

I think Argentina will win the World Cup because they have a lot of stars in
the team, including the best player in the World in Lionel Messi. I root
for Argentina and Italy because they are the teams that I followed the most,
and also because I grew up watching both teams.

than soccer, what sport would you have liked to have participated in?

tennis and karate a lot, so If I wasn’t a soccer player... I would love to be a
karate fighter since my dad use to be a professional karate fighter and he was
Pan-American champion.

had several examples while I grew up, which I am really thankful for. I had my
parents, brothers, friends, and coaches who all made an impact in my life in a
certain way.

you model yourself after? Why?
