Interview

Why should I recruit you ?

    It is necessary to recruit me because I’m a competitor. I have team spirit. I’m respectful and right. I can be a leader. I like to work hard to reach my goals. I have positive mind. I’m very complete: I can run 800m as 10km, I am at the moment 1500m runner, in order to develop my speed. I think and my coach also thinks that I’m a 3000/5000 meters runner. I have always participated to the French championship of cross country in different age categories.

Why do you want to compete at US Colleges?

 

    I want to compete at the U.S college because :

- It would be an opportunity for me to able to conciliate sport and studies.

- To discover another culture and a country which attracts me.

- To be fluent in English

What do you want to achieve in Track/XC?

 

   My achievement in XC is to help the team by giving my best for the university which will choose me. On track, I want to be the fastest possible to pass under the 3'45" mark in 1500m and to make 1'50 " for 800m. this season I will run short cross country. I may be doing few indoor races, if my preparation is going well. This summer I will run the 1500m mainly I hope to get under the 3'50 mark which seems possible.

 

College and life goals?

    My college and life goals is to make a BBA in management and finance to become a financial and administrative manager or a CEO of company. After my BBA I would like study a Master's degree in France or in the USA.
