About Athlete

My objective is to make sure I make it in life, both as an athlete and in my academics. The goal is to keep up my great form and evolve from just the fastest person in my school to one of the fastest in the best division of athletics. My objective is to come to USA in 2022 and leave a mark in whatever sports team and university I represent.

What makes you different?

What makes me unique is that I only started running a year ago but am and still the fastest 100m and 200m sprinter in my school as it stands. I know I have what it takes because I am always willing to do everything in my power to make sure I produce the best in me, even though my greatest attribute, determination, is also my greatest weakness. I am aware that I am too determined, which is good and also bad. Nevertheless, I am a very sporty person and I think I will always have what it takes.

Why do you want to compete in college?

The potential of developing into a star one day got my attention to participate in College sports and the reason I want to come to USA in specific is because my belief is that it produces the best athletes and proves to be the best place to go for proper training and development of one's sports.

College Goals?

I want to perform in the best competitive division in college and make my way into being a pro athlete. I want to represent the college in the best way possible and also put in my effort to become an Olympic sprinter at some point. I want as many wins on my belt as I can get because of my hunger for winning.

My goal with college is also to complete my BSc of Engineering in Mechanical engineering and use that to earn a living as potential back up to after my or even during my athletics career.

Anything else we should know?

I have a passion for competition and a high determination for winning. I always put my all into whatever I do and that's why I am always up for the challenge.
