Additional sporting info

Since the age of 13, I have been in an elite sport environment thanks to Team Denmark. I am used to balancing training sessions in the morning with school and then training sessions again in the afternoon. I have also been taught how to optimize my body in terms of the right nutrition and amount of rest.

What makes you different?

I am a mature, smart and hardworking defender capable of covering multiple positions due to my versatility and experience. My maturity sees me taking a lot of responsibility not only for myself but also for my teammates and friends. On top of that, I have a great level of perseverance and life has taught me what an important value it is.

Why do you want to compete in college?

Apart from the experience of living abroad in a different culture and making new friends. Then the combination of a great sporting environment and a degree, thus my future both on and off the pitch becomes more secure.

College Goals?

I hope to further my knowledge both on and off the pitch as well as hopefully sharing my experience and all in all, just contribute to a great collective.
