Junior, Natalia Santiago has been starting varsity soccer since her freshman year.  Her favorite subject here at Canfield high school is math. 

When asked what she enjoys about math, she replied, “I like to figure things out, when you have the answer it feels rewarding.”  

Natalia started soccer at a young age, and started club soccer around 7 years old.

“I really like it, and it has always been one of my favorite sports,” she said.

Natalia is very passionate about soccer, and has met some of her close friends now from the sport.  She does not dislike anything about soccer, besides when she gets frustrated with herself.  

Growing up Natalia was put in many sports, but soccer is the one that she enjoys the most.  One thing that she does regret is not sticking with piano. 

In the future Natalia wants to be a pediatrician, because she loves working with kids, and she has always found it interesting.  When she was younger she found her pediatrician the coolest guy ever, and strived to be someone like him.  Natalia's parents both work in the medical field so she would describe them as her role models. Currently Natalia babysits kids a lot, and loves working with them.

One of Natalia's favorite things about high school are the football games. 

When asked what her favorite high school memories are, she replied, “I love the experience of going to football games, and homecoming is another big thing.”

She enjoys sitting in the student section with all her friends and having a good time. She also will always remember her first homecoming sophomore year, and how excited she was since she missed her freshman one due to Covid. 

Overall, Natalia is very hardworking, and has a big future ahead of her.  She will continue to play soccer, but is unsure if she wants to play in college yet.  She still has one more year ahead of her at Canfield High School.
