After moving to the US at 12 years old, I started playing competitive football at the youth level. I went to Boone High School in Orlando, Florida and played there as well. During high school, I also played in club teams such as Golden Goal Sports Academy, South Orlando SC, and others. After high school, I pursued higher education at Florida Institute of Technology where I also played for the Panthers. During my senior year there, the team went undefeated in the conference taking second place and won the conference tournament.
