We love 22-year-old soccer star Lauren Cheney. She's passionate, talented and was recently named as an Under Armour athlete for her accomplishments! At such a young age, Lauren has dazzled with her impressive soccer skills and will be promoting UA's latest campaign, Protect This House. I Will with the likes of Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps and many more. CG! caught up with the up-and-comer to get the deets on who inspires her, what advice she follows, and how she stays focused. Check it out:

CosmoGIRL!: Tell us more about the campaign and what it means to you.

Lauren Cheney: To me, Protect This House is protecting your teammates and your friends. I really think Under Armour encompasses not only athletics but being a good person and building good relationships. I think that has to do with being a role model for a younger player. I think the I Will part of the campaign is the dedication and promise you're making to yourself and to everyone else around you that you'll be a better person and athlete. You have to give it all you have.

CG!: What advice would you give to aspiring athletes?

LC: I would say "Only do what's in your control." As an athlete you want control of so much! Focus on what's in your control: Your fitness, how hard you train, and the effort you give. At the end of the day you will be happy and the result will most likely be in your favor.

CG!: What is it about soccer that you love the most?

LC: I just love to play! I love actually solving the game, I love the competition, and I love how physical it is. Practicing every day is so much fun!

CG!: How do you stay focused when playing?

LC: The funny thing is, I'm not focused if I'm not laughing, dancing, or smiling! I'm always the one dancing in the locker room before the game or laughing on the field when something goes wrong. When I'm having fun it just flows. If I'm enjoying it, it just comes naturally and it becomes easier to play.

CG!: Who inspires you?

LC: I've been blessed to have so many great coaches along the way. And I always look to my family for everything. My brother and sister are my best friends and my parents are my biggest fans. They're definitely my inspiration.

Keep an eye out for Lauren in the upcoming campaign commercials for Under Armour and be sure to cheer her on as she plays center forward for the Boston Breakers. Now that's girl power!

What is your favorite sport to play and why?

Lauren Brown

A lifelong pop culture junkie, Lauren made her dream of being a writer in NYC come true just four days after graduating from the University of South Florida. Her crazy career has taken her from print (entertainment editor of CosmoGIRL!, staff writer of Us Weekly, and deputy features editor of Inside TV) to radio (booking talent and producing segments on Sirius Satellite Radio) to TV (writing scripts for New Afternoons on MTV with host Adrienne Bailon).
