What makes you different?

In my past I have overcome many difficult situations which I believe has made me a mentally strong person. I started playing tennis at a late age but since I was determined, I learned quickly which I believe is a good personality of mine.

I’m always looking forward to spending each minute on the court and improving every day.

I have always been fond of seeing new places and meeting new people. I’ve had the fortune to travel for a big part of my life and because of this I know four languages fluently which is a great advantage.

Why do you want to compete in college?

The ideal future for me is to combine my studies with tennis, this isn’t an option in most countries which is why the US is the perfect place for me.

Competing in college will be an amazing opportunity to meet new people and be a part of a team, I believe that this will help me evolve as an individual and foremost as a tennis player.

I want this to be an experience and I see this as a chance to learn about a whole new life within tennis and academics.

College Goals?

I would love to study architecture, it has always been a goal of mine. I hope to graduate with high grades while competing in college at the same time. I want to contribute to my team and develop further as a tennis player.
