Student-Athlete, University of Nottingham
They say that Adversity brings out the best in you. So it did, for William Michael Winter, a promising soccer player from the Philippines. This is a story of an aspiring soccer player who battled a personal setback during the admissions process but made it to his dream school despite all odds.
British by birth, raised in Manila, and a soccer enthusiast, William’s prowess was impossible to miss on the soccer pitch. The result of his father’s teachings, who instilled strong values of hard work and commitment.
When William reached out to us, his mind was fixed on the top US colleges. He began the recruiting journey with AddedSport in the summer of his sophomore year. Being born in the UK, William should have ideally chosen colleges in the UK. But he was more keen on U.S. colleges as he believed it would give him a greater opportunity to continue his passion for soccer.
His commitment and patience got him to the University of Nottingham : just where he wanted to be.
