What makes you different?
I am not afraid of failure, in fact it is an important part of me that drives me towards success. I am very disciplined and not easily distracted by things that are less important to me.
Why do you want to compete in college?
Collage will really assist me in fulfilling my dream of becoming a professional athlete and further my career dream. This is also an advantage for me to travel abroad and experience a different culture. It is beneficial towards my personal development by becoming more independent, more mature and taking care of myself without my family being around.
My biggest goal is to break school records is my events.
Run sub 02:10 in 800m and sub 04:15 in 1500m.
Study hard and graduate with outstanding grades in my major.
