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%
