“This racism needs to stop. The racism I have seen in professional sports both in the U.S.
and Europe is terrible. I would like to change it, I am not sure how, but I think peaceful
protests are part of the answer”. – Amet Korca
Amet is currently playing professional soccer with Zagreb in Croatia. His goal is to play
professional soccer in England, Spain or Italy in the next few years.
He loves esports and plays FIFA and Call of Duty. But most of his time is taken up with training,
school and recovery.
“My favorite memory really has to do with what the school has allowed me to do and
accomplish my goal of being able to play in Europe while finishing high school and pursuing my dreams,” shared Amet.
Amet’s biggest inspiration is his dad. “I see how hard he works. I really admire his work ethic.
He gets up very early to go to work and doesn’t get back until 9pm at night,” says Amet.
“I’m so glad I had the opportunity to work with you this year, Amet! Well done on pushing
through and dedicating time to your education. When you put your mind to something, you can
do anything. Best of luck and congratulations!” – Kelly Dalke, USPA English Teacher
