From the surface, having a stellar career and making an unparalleled reputation in the respective fields seems like a very easy job. But there is so much more than just glitz and glam for making a mark in an industry. Regardless of the field, to be known for doing something great, a whole lot of dedication and hard work is required.

There was a time when “making a career” in any field was very limited, but fortunately, today, the options to step in a field, professionally, are infinite. And it is all thanks to the trailblazers the world has blessed us with.

These are the people we follow, look up to, and get our inspirations from. Why? It’s simple and very clear, they are the ones making a positive impact, not on just one person, but hundreds and thousands of individuals across the world. And when it comes to soccer’s beloved star, Truitt Battin, the story is no different. With the dream to be a footballer from when he was just six years old, Battin has taken the idea of being an inspiration to people up a notch.

“My parents liked the name, as well as he [was] a good Christian guy, so that’s how I got my name.”

Funnily enough, Battin’s name came from an inspiration itself! His parents couldn’t decide what to name him until they came upon an article on Chick-fil-A founder, S. Truett Cathy. Who knew that he would one day become a muse, too, one who would be known throughout the world for spreading positivity!

Battin wasn’t just interested in playing soccer from when he was a kid. He knew that this is what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. Soccer was more than just a game to Battin, and he wanted to be a part of it forever.

Battin grew up with the burning passion for being a great soccer star, and he was aware that he had the skills to be one. But he was also aware of the requisites and hassles that the game would demand of him. And that is when he began working his way to the top.

His first step was to polish the skills he owned, improve them and learn more. Not only did he put in endless hours to fulfill the demands, but he also began following a strict training schedule. This is probably one of the many things that distinguishes him from other players. Battin realized from a very early age that the game wasn’t just about the flashes and shimmers. Instead, it took a lot of courage and steadfastness to be a prominent figure in the soccer world, and because of that, he is known for his speed, vision on the field, and being able to cut in and out left and right with the ball and being able to shoot at any time.

Battin leaped at his career as an attacking threat and performed exceptionally well in all the games that he played. He was just 11 when he was offered to play for Red Star Belgrade! Several other clubs were also interested in hiring Battin as a player, but FIFA rules made switching quite challenging.

Every summer, Battin is invited to Europe to play pro for Red Star, FK Partizan, and some other teams. He continually plays there to work on his skills on and off the ball. He has also been invited to play and train at FIFA headquarters in Serbia with some of the best soccer players from around the world.

As of today, Battin plays professional soccer in Croatia. Prior to that, he was a player in Switzerland for FC Sion and in Serbia for Red Star and FK Partizan. Battin is currently one of the seven USA pro-FIFA soccer players playing in Europe.

But the field isn’t the only place where Battin has become a prominent sensation. The young star is also consistently being highlighted as an online influence who is sharing his everyday life experiences in an attempt to share positivity and happiness throughout the globe.

Battin knows that people look up to celebrity stars for encouragement and support, which is why, through sharing his experiences, he aims at motivating his fans. Through his social media accounts, Battin is constantly trying to bring hope in this dark world!

Truitt Battin is not just a stellar soccer player, but an inspiration and a ray of hope, for all those who are looking for a little push to take their careers forward and make their marks!

Sports can be played for fun and recreation, but for many it can change our lives forever. For professional basketball player Roman Perez, the game of basketball has helped him succeed in his life but also impact many along his journey. On and off the court he’s a leader, and through his story he hopes to continue to motivate others to never lose hope on their dreams and goals.

Born in the Dominican Republic and raised in Brooklyn, New York, his story starts in the neighborhood of Williamsburg. Falling in love with game at a young age, but not playing or practicing were some of the obstacles he faced. His community was dangerous to be around and this resulted to his parents not letting him go out to the playgrounds. Instead, he would collect basketball cards, play basketball videos games, and be creative at home with his younger brother Jay Perez.

As a kid his dreams was to prove his peers that he was a good basketball player, but the result was being mistreated in his younger years because of his lack of skills. Getting cut from 6th – 12th grade and his first year in college, only motivated Roman to continue to fight for what he wanted to accomplish. His parents trusted him in his late teen years to finally go out to the parks. He made sure to take advantage of the open opportunity to train and work hard on his skills, to improve and become better daily.

After years of this regimen, his continuation and dedication paid off when he played for his first organized team in college. Years of practicing in the parks, and playing in New York city asphalts tournaments helped him reach this goal. Transferring to his second school, his dreams were getting closer. He made the leap to play professionally, proving himself that with discipline and perseverance we can accomplish lots in our lives. He’s an active basketball player, and is currently a member of the world-famous Court Kingz basketball team where he will be using his home nickname “da Gift”.

Off the basketball court he’s the founder of the Dudo Baez foundation, which is named after his late father. The foundation provides inner city adults and youths with camps, clinics, and tournaments. It’s based in the Dominican Republic, New York and growing in different parts of the world. His goal is to give hope for those who are in need of it through the game. He’s a mentor and motivational speaker as well, leaving others with self-belief in their individual lives.

The Roman Perez story is one of never giving up and the fruit of success will be there waiting. He currently trains his daughter Leia Perez, in hopes of her personal success in her journey with the game of basketball. Lastly, his upcoming documentary “I am Victorious’, is set to release later this year on social media platforms.
