Over the past few years, I have connected with ACE staff, students and volunteers through soccer. The ACE community contributes immensely our Cultural Exchange through Soccer organization with volunteers at big events, players for scrimmages and testimony & lobbying for more fields in Worcester. Outside of all that they contribute to our organization and our city at large, they are a beautiful, loving family that I am so grateful to be welcomed into.
