Coach Roberto has been an integral part of my soccer career since meeting him in 2011. His coaching style and understanding of the game has made me the player I am today. He fostered the technical skills of soccer, allowing me to play at a high-level throughout my university and adult career, including playing at Quest University as well as on the UBC Varsity team. The attributes I gained from him have gone beyond their use solely on the field. Through hard work and pushing us to our limits, he has opened up possibilities beyond what I dreamt for my body, both physically and mentally. These transferable skills have made me resilient, determined, and above all, a hard working teammate with an understanding of the “team-first”. I cannot thank Coach Roberto enough for all he has given me, both on and off the pitch.
