What makes you different?

Adaptability, investment and focus. These key characteristics have enabled me to perform consistently at a high level both academically and athletically.

Why do you want to compete in college?

Balancing sports and academics is key to my personal development. As the U.S.A is renowned for its first class colleges and infrastructures. It is the optimal route for me to continue to pursue my life goals.
Meeting new people and expanding my horizons.
Discovering and learning with new coaching techniques.
Compete at the highest level.
Benchmark my French experience with US experience
Evolving my game integrating international influences.
Continuing to develop personally having an international background and experience.

College Goals?

Going to university in the US has been a dream of mine and an opportunity I have created through hard work and dedication since I was 10 years old.

The first day I stepped foot on a pitch, the first time I lifted a trophy, were the moments I realized I had to put in the extra work if I wanted to relive those moments and take them to the next level.

To continue to balance an excellent performance in both sports and academics. Obtaining a first class degree qualification and in parallel contributing to wining team championship titles.

The opportunity to live in a new country and be integrated in a culture will equip me to be successful in my future personal and professional life.
