Interview

Why should I recruit you ?

  First, I think I have a good ability to adapt. It is important to know how to comply with strict rules, something that does not bother me since I myself am very serious and rigorous both in sports and in the school sphere. I am thoughtful and practical and not afraid of having to work hard to achieve my goals. Also, team spirit and community living are things that I love and find very important. I will be happy to join a team for which I will fight at every competition.

 

Why do you want to compete at US Colleges?

 

  To be admitted to an American university would be a great opportunity for me. 
This is one of the only places on earth where high level sport and study can be really reconciled From a sports, school or even social point of view, I think it's a very interesting and rewarding project. Having the chance to compete in big races, where the level is very high, could allow me to make huge progress and would be a real springboard for the future.

You would simply allow me to realize my dream!

What do you want to achieve in Track/XC?

  I have many goals in mind and I am very demanding with myself. Lowering my times on 400m and 800m is my main goal. I am pretty quick but I still have a fairly high margin of progression. In addition, I would like to become better in endurance so nothing better than participating in cross country with the super level we know in the US!

 

College and life goals?

  From a school point of view, I want to turn to studies related to  management, business, and communication. To be able to validate a bachelor's degree in the USA and to continue with a master's degree in communication in my country of origin could allow me to have a really advantageous and very complete school career. Besides being totally immersed in a place where everyone speaks English would really be a great help for my future life. Moreover, given my young age, joining an American university would be a real open-mindedness and a great life experience thanks to the discovery of a new culture, new ways of thinking and much more...

Anything to add?

  I will always fight body and soul to represent the university in which I will be!
