Why should I recruit you ?
You should recruit me because I am a good rugby player, in the best French division. I have played with the national team and I am recognized as a high level athlete by the French ministry of sports. I have strong rugby experience playing 15 as well as 7. I would like to bring with me to the U.S. my rugby experience and culture, to show you what I have learnt in France, in exchange of studying at your university.
Why do you want to compete at US Colleges ?
I want to study in the U.S. because to my knowledge, this country has the best infrastructures for sports as for school. Moreover, I have always dreamed of studying in the USA, I want to live my American dream ! It will also help me become fluent in English because I will be able to practice the language everyday. Additionally, I studying in the USA will be very valuable for me because I want to study international business, and the country is the number one economy in the World.
How do you see your Rugby career ?
I chose the USA to play rugby because I want to discover another style of rugby and because I am adventurous. But also because the U.S. teams play more sevens than in France. On fifteens, I would like to find a team/coach that would train me for the positions 8, 7 and 6. I would also consider playing for another country than France in the future on the international scene. My goal is to find sponsors in the USA to play professional.
College and life goals ?
My life goals are quite simple. I want to study international business and get a master’s in the USA. I would like to sale luxury cars such as BMW, Audi, etc.
Anything to add ?
I hope to find a school that welcomes me and that will be able to cover most of my expenses because I am coming from a modest family and that will help me to get sooner at your school, instead of working an extra year before living France. I promise that you won’t be disappointed by giving me this opportunity !
