What makes you different?

My passion is golf. I practice 5 hours per day to make a success of my golf. During tournaments this year I am catching up on school work at night in order to ensure that I am not falling behind as I do understand that my academic results also is important. I hate to lose and that is why I try to improve on all aspect of the game. I have a personal coach that assist me.

Why do you want to compete in college?

I am interested in completing a degree and want to become a pro-golfer. The colleges in the USA has great facilities and higher standard of competition. I am interested in the USA as I believe they have the best coaching facilities and I also believe this is one of the toughest competition areas. I believe in gradual growth to become successful, as I do believe that going through the ranks does bring sustainable success.

College Goals?

I would like to obtain a degree in architectural design and would like to be part of the college A-team. I want to ensure I compete regularly and will be an ambassador for my college.
