My name is Megan Rapinoe, a proud native of Redding California, but I now happily call Seattle my home. Soccer has always been a passion of mine since I was a little kid, and still is to this day. I have been very fortunate to play for the Women's National Team for 10 years, taking home an Olympic gold medal in 2012, and a Women's World Cup Trophy in 2015. Currently I play for the Seattle Reign FC in the NWSL.
This beautiful game has taken me all over the world, allowed me wonderful experiences, and has given me so much, but not everything. I have always used music as a way to disconnected and shift gears, allowing me to clear my mind and recharge. Since I was a teenager I have packed my guitar alongside my cleats, finding one cannot be without the other. I have learned over the years that I really need other outlets in my life to stay balanced, and quite frankly, to not go mad while traveling for weeks on end.
