Why should I recruit you ?
I am young (17 years old), determined, ambitious. I think a coach who will recruit me would not be disappointed because even if my PBs aren't impressive yet, I'm very complete and I think I can progress and improve. Actually I did my best times with only 4 trainings per week. I could definitely handle more training if I'm in a great environment, which allows me to reconcile studies and athletics. I'm self-willed and I've a huge mindset in both training and competition. That got me to 9th place of the Nationals decathlon in 2018.
Why do you want to compete at US Colleges?
In France, we only have a few Team competitions with our clubs and I'm always really glad to take part in them because, in addition to what I can bring with my personal performance, the most important thing is the team' result. Moreover, everyone supports everyone and I believe it's in these conditions and with an incredible atmosphere, that we can give the best of ourselves. Unfortunately, in France, there are only two competitions like this a year and they only happen with our club. So, to do team competitions, I would like to compete in American colleges.
What do you want to achieve in Track?
I am a very complete athlete. I used to do XC competitions when I was younger and today I'm at the decathlon. So I want to improve and break all my PBs in all disciplines. I want to be an even-more complete athlete : fast and technical. To conclude, like every athlete with a national level, my dream is to represent my country in an international competition.
College and life goals?
If I have the opportunity to study in the United States, I wish to pursue a post-graduate course in industrial or mechanical design or industrial equipment systems. In these jobs many interventions are performed abroad. This is the reason why studying in the US could be very important in my career, a good education and a right level English are essential. I have a lot of life goals but the most important is to have a great academic background while continuing to practice athletics at the highest level.
