Why should I recruit you ?
You should recruit me because I run since I can stand on my feet, and I am passionate about my sport. I practice 400m hurdles for only 3years, so I think I have many things to improve to become stronger. As I am organized, focused and determined, I progress very quickly!
Why do you want to compete at US Colleges?
I would like to compete at U.S. colleges because it would allow me to step a milestone in terms of training and performance. For me U.S. colleges mean more training, harder training and better performances.
What do you want to achieve in Track/XC?
My main objective is to enjoy the feeling of running fast, because I am passioned about speed. But I am also a great competitor and I love surpassing myself. So, I would like to become one the best French 400m hurdles runners and I dream of being selected in the French team.
College and life goals?
For me it’s as important to be good on track as at school and in my professional life. I want my entourage to be proud of me not only because I am sporty, but also because I am the best I can in my all life. Studying in Master and competing at U.S. colleges would be the best way possible to accomplish my double project.
Anything to add?
When I was younger, I was a good 110m hurdles runner so I am quite polyvalent and I quickly adapt myself.
To finish my dream goal is to become an Olympian and I already accomplished some of my dreams, so… 😉
