I Melissa, the main character started learning how to play soccer at the age of 7. Then, at the age of 9 I started playing in a team of boys. Since I had experience in soccer already, I was one of the best players. It continued playing with the boys until the age of 12.
After playing with the boys for a couple of years, I moved to a girls soccer club where I actually started the hard work. I played with the girls for a couple of years until high school.
I started playing in a varsity team in high school and got recognized by many people because of that. I played until one day I was being scouted.
So, after being scouted, the school gave me a scholarship. This helped me a lot when playing in college.
After playing in college for a while, I was scouted again but, this time it was to join a professional team. Eventually, I was asked to join the team but, my parents wanted me to stay I school. I decided to play for the team over staying in school.
I played with the USWNT but, I played against one of the best, Falisha Hamm. She would take anyone who is better than down. Of course, I was better than her but I didn't worry about her because I soon became one of the best players in the world of soccer.
