Interview

Why should I recruit you ?

  I think I am a good athlete with big determination to become better. I train every day alone no matter the conditions. I am specialized in 3k steeplechase and my personnal record is 8’52’’26. I prefer tactical races vs. paced races because we run to finish in front of others. Thanks to my determination I was able to get on podiums at the U23 French Championships. I would like go to the USA to discover something else, get out of my comfort zone and to be able to reconcile a master and progress well in my discipline.

.

 

Why do you want to compete at US Colleges?

 

  For me, USA is the best place to reconcile sport and studies. Sport level is very high and I want to discover a new challenge. In France it’s really complicated to study and to play sport at high level if you don’t have help. I also want to show what I am capable of, to surpass myself to better represent the university that I will represent.

What do you want to achieve in Track/XC?

  I want to improve my best level and break my PB’s in 1500/3000/3k steeplechase and why not 5000m, to progress all the year with teammates. I want to improve in XC. My dream is to represent my country during international championships.

 

College and life goals?

  My field of study is coaching or nutrition so I think it’s important to speak a very well English for a future job.

My second goal is to discover new culture, new country and new people all over the world and specifically in USA. I think at 23 years old it’s the good time to live my American dream.

Anything to add?

  I am social person. Go to USA next year is my priority. I am motivated at 200%
