Dream Chasing 201
Time & Location
About the Event
Meet the up-and-coming Sounders player Danny Leyva and learn how he pursued his wildest dreams to become a professional soccer player and the 3rd youngest MLS player of all time. Everyone has a dream, whether it be big or small, that they long to reach but not everyone knows what it takes to fulfill those fantasies. At only 18, Danny has already achieved so much but still, he wants more. He has more dreams to chase.
In this (minimum) hour-long Zoom meeting, Rajdeep Das (Connect Volunteering's founder and CEO) will sit with Danny to delve into his personal journey to the top, discuss the lessons he learned, and let the audience ask their own questions. You'll learn how Danny started and what he did that allowed him the opportunity to be paid to kick a ball around, something billions of people do every day.
Whether you have dreams that have to do with sports or not, this workshop will help you understand the hard work and sacrifice that comes with fulfilling your wildest dreams. We can all learn a thing or two about that.
