Fighting for animal healthcare equity.
Alen embodies leadership in everything he does. As captain of the varsity soccer team, his patience, leadership, and care for his teammates has led to four playoff appearances, two Frontier league championships, and being named Conference All-Star twice. Alen understands that everyone must start somewhere and he does not forget how much he needed a mentor when he was starting off playing soccer. His relentless drive comes from understanding the importance of the opportunities that were bestowed upon him. Alen grew up in a community where opportunity was scarce and few people had access to resources or support. While he consistently pushes himself to be the best version of himself, he still struggles like everyone else and has learned the importance of looking back and learning from failure. A quote that Alen tries to embody is, “It wasn’t necessary to win for the story to be great, it was only necessary to sacrifice everything.”
