Why should I recruit you ?

  You should recruit me because I am a complete athlete able to run fast, for a long while. When something interests me, I can do it at 100%! And when I am 100% invested into something, I am competent and nothing can stop me. I am a fighter. That is a quality that you are looking for because I want to beat opponents, but I specially want to surpass me whether it be on competition, on training or in life. Moreover, I run and work for me, but I run and work for a group too. See my school/work group or my training group achieving beautiful things is really gratifying for me.

 

Why do you want to compete at US Colleges?

 

  I would love to compete in the US because the level there is really challenging for me and this would give me the opportunity to be better at what I aim in life, so to say being a professional athlete and to become a teacher at a university level. Moreover I would be able to go to class and to be confronted to great athletic performing conditions at the same time. In France, sport and competition are not as important as in the US and this way I would be able to achieve my dreams. I reckon that an American college can teach me so many things at a scholar level and at a sport level. Going to your university would be give me opportunities that I wouldn’t have anywhere else. Moreover, I am sure that this experience would obviously make me a better person.

What do you want to achieve in Track/XC?

  On the track my goals are to beat my own records on my favorite distance, the 800m.

I can also run the 400m and the 1500m.

On the short-term I aim to win a second medal at the French championships this summer, especially a gold medal. On the medium-term a national selection at the European’s U23 on the 800m would be amazing.

 

College and life goals?

  If I am getting into an American university my wish would be to reach the Master’s Degree in kinesiology. I am the kind of person who has clear goals in life and this is very important for me to have a structured and healthy life. As I said earlier, I would really enjoy being a teacher in college whether in France or in the USA. I am always open to learn new things and enjoy learning so much because it helps me become a better person every day. This way learning is a real pleasure but teaching others would be a dream and this is why I would love to join an American university.
