What makes you different?

I’m a natural hard worker and always determined to do my best; albeit on the field or in lecture rooms. I am able to lead others well (especially out of sticky and uneasy situations), learn quickly from my own and others’ downfalls while always doing my best and getting the best out of others. My ability to read the game well, stay calm and level headed in any circumstance, along with my physical and technical ability, allow me to be a consistent team player wherever and whenever needed.

Why do you want to compete in college?

I want to be challenged and have the platform to challenge myself, grow as an individual and become the best player I possibly can. College soccer is formed on the basis to produce top quality athletes with quality coaching and the outstanding facilities provided. I would like to become a quality soccer player, while also obtaining a college degree for my future endeavors.

College Goals?

I would like to maintain my 4.0 GPA and achieve high academic results in the field I’ll be studying, while experiencing the USA culture and helping my college team achieve success beyond compare. By the time my college career draws to a close I would like to have developed into the best soccer player I can be, to become a top athlete in contention in the MLS Draft and to be a great academic in my field.

Anything else we should know?

I was a Prefect at Westerford High School (top 3 academic schools in the country) for the 2017 year. Alongside being a regular school, soccer and community promotional interviewee (like the recent Westerford involvement and activity regarding rule policy changes) – (Eg. Kyknet TV show, Hectic 9Nine, Expresso TV show, News 24 articles and Cape Town TV show). Journalist, media writer and Social Media Manager of Grit Sports Page Online. I’ve also played school rugby for the first 3 years of high school (A side in all age groups).
