Carla Swensen's story starts out much like that of most teenage girls who have grown up playing soccer since they were little kids.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me. Ever since I started playing competitive soccer, I'd go to practice every day and work hard and run and sweat and hope that someday I'd get a chance to play on the international level. So when that opportunity does present itself, you've got to go for it.”
