Awards, press

I was part of the Diving Quebec Elite diving team in 2017 and finalist for Athlete of the Year in 2015 and 2016.

I was also honored by the mayor of my city for my sports excellence numerous times and received grants from the city.

Additional sporting info

I have been competing in the Canadian Junior National Diving Championships every year for the past 6 years, placing in the top 20 for the last 4 years.

Towards the end of the 2016 season, I started to develop pain at the knees.  The diving club I was diving with did not realize what was going on and the symptoms carried on in 2017 and 2018, with no support from the Club or the coach.  I saw multiple specialists and was diagnosed with Osgood-Schlatter and patellar tendinopathy, so I had to stop practicing 1 meter and 3 meter for some time. In 2017, I also got hit by a car 2 weeks before nationals, but still managed to compete at the event.

As of now, my knees are almost fully recovered and I’m back on 1 meter and 3 meter.

What makes you different?

I think I have what it takes because I work very hard, I am determined to succeed and I don’t give up easily. Other divers would probably have stopped if they had had my knee condition because it was very painful emotionally and physically. I could only do 10 to 15 dives per practices for almost 2 years whereas I was used to doing close to 100 per practices. Because of that, I learned to maximize my training by applying the corrections right away. I have also been getting overall averages above 90% for all my high school.

Why do you want to compete in college?

What made me interested in college sports is that I can continue diving during my studies. I have been diving for the most part of my life and I don’t want to stop. I love diving and I think that competing with a college team will be an exciting and challenging journey.

College Goals?

My academic goal in college is to become a doctor, I want to graduate in medicine so that I can do something that I’ll hopefully love and make a difference in people’s lives. As of diving, I’d like to be part of a team that makes me love training and motivates me to do better and to proudly represent my college.

Anything else we should know?

I have been recognized by the Québec provincial education ministry for my result (96 %) in the final exam in History and Citizenship.

For every report card I’ve had in high school, the school has given me a mention for my outstanding grades.
