Senior bios: Dowagiac’s Elizabeth Brito

Elizabeth Brito is a senior on the Dowagiac soccer team.

 

Activities: Spending time with my family.

 

Hobbies:  Reading, listening to music and running.

 

My favorite soccer memory: Allegan’s coach angered during half time sophomore year because he thought it was going to be an easy game, but we proved him wrong.

 

Future plans: Attend Western Michigan University and receive my bachelor’s in social work.

 

How have you been making the best of being quarantined? I’ve continued to stay physically active and spent time reading books. I’m focusing on my next step in life and making sure I’m set for college.

Awards/Accomplishments: MVP sophomore year, high honors and Miss Dowagiac finalist

 

Advice to underclassmen: My advice to underclassmen is be ready for the good and bad. There will be many times when it might seem difficult, but just keep pushing and work hard. Also, it’s a team effort, so bond and get to know all your teammates. Leave the drama behind, and instead, lift each other up. Lastly, leave it all on the field because you don’t know when you’ll find yourself on a field again.
