 There a lot of thing that are important to people but the object that is important to me is  soccer because  when my dad was younger he played soccer and he loved the sport with a passion but then he had to stop playing soccer since he had to think about his family. Since I was born I wasn't really that much into sports until I saw my dad play soccer and I want to feel the same passion he felt the same excitement and the same feeling to know that your families are watching me playing. If it wasn't for soccer most of my family wouldn't be together that much we wouldn't have been spending time together And we hang  out since when we know there's soccer on TV or a match or something we go over to each other's houses and have a Stakeout. This connect’s to where my family came from because in Mexico usually the only sport people play soccer. If it wasn't for soccer I think I wouldn't have made it so many great memories with my family and become the person i’am now.
