Why Holy Cross College

“Coach Omar reached out to me about the women’s soccer program, and when I came for my visit the students and faculty were really kind and wholehearted. It made me realize it would be a home away from home,” said Padilla. “Within the women’s soccer team, we all play a big role on the team and on and off the field as a community, we are a family.”

Impactful moment

“One of the many memorable moments in my life was when I graduated high school,” recalls Padilla. “I felt very accomplished in life knowing I was closing a big chapter of my life to open a bigger one. I am first gen to go to college so that made me feel very happy to make my mom proud of me and to do what she couldn’t/wasn’t able to do.”

After graduation

“My plans for my future are to hopefully become a prosecution lawyer and make the world a better place one case at a time.”
