My name is Céleste, I’m a 15-year-old golfer and I live in Geneva, Switzerland. I’m passionate about the game and started playing at 7, but my parents weren’t playing golf, so I had to convince them first, which took a few months! I have 3 siblings, two dogs and come from a Swiss and Italian family. I speak 4 languages, Italian and French being my mother tongues, German and English being taught early at school.
In 2019 I became the Swiss U12 Champion, and then had the privilege to be admitted in the Swiss National training groups. I played in several international events, both Junior and Women, and was ranked first on the Swiss Junior scoreboard U14 at the end 2021, and I won the swiss U14 final. In 2022, I had to make a break from competing for health issues during the first half of the season, but when I came back, I won an U18 event and entered the WAGR mid-August 2022. My WHS handicap is currently +0,2, and I’m committed to continue to stand up for my passion. I’m actually ranked 11/1090 Girls U15 players by the French golf federation and 9th/29 Girls U16 by the Swiss Golf association. Academically, I’m in a school which offers a double diploma at the end of High School: International Baccalaureate and Swiss Maturity. I chose to do both, to expand my way of learning and because I wanted to experiment another way of thinking. My graduation year is 2024 but I’m willing to enroll in 2025, my dream being to attend a college where both the academics and the golfing aim to excel.

What makes you different?
I love to compete, the golf course is where I learn and grow. I also learned patience and humility, and some setbacks helped me change my way of training and gain some grit. I also love a good laugh and being part of a team which will be like a family for me is important.
Why do you want to compete in college?
Golf is my passion and equilibrium . I would like to go pro after my graduation and playing at a collegiate level where I can be challenged and improved is the next step. I also would like to achieve an academic degree, because it's important not to close all the options so soon in my life.
Bachelor in either Psychology (sports psychology) or Business. I would like to find an academically challenging college, where I could continue to learn.
Anything else we should know?
I love chocolate!
International baccalaureate and Swiss Maturity Diploma
My schools offers a double diploma. I will be graduating in 2024 but wish to enroll in 2025.
