Hello, I'm Alex Knieling and I am from Marietta, Georgia. I am a freshman here at Valdosta State University and my major is undeclared. However, I am thinking of pursing a degree in business, specifically business management. Another option I have been thinking about is a career as a naval architect. If i were to pursue that path, then I would have to take the pre-engineering course here at Valdosta. I have not made up my mind but these are the two options I am thinking about.
I enjoy hanging out with my friends, wakeboarding at the lake, and playing soccer. This will be my first year not playing soccer since I was 6 years old. I started playing soccer competitively when i was in 8th grade in middle school. Since then I have played on a top ten team in Georgia and traveled to many states for collegiate tournaments as well as Barcelona, Spain for an international tournament. Throughout high school, I was on the soccer team and while I was there, my school was ranked by ESPN as the number one soccer team in the nation. I was unable to play my senior year of high school due to a hamstring injury and decided not to pursue the game in college because of the injury.
