What makes you different?

I am a very hard worker both in the classroom and the pool. I believe there is a lot of potential in me and that I can become a very good swimmer that can score a lot of points. Once I set myself a goal I will pursue it ruthlessly.

Why do you want to compete in college?

I want to compete in college as I want to combine my studies with sport at a high level. I also want to experience the college environment and the team experience.

College Goals?

My number one priority will be to perform as well as possible in the classroom. My goal has always been to find the best possible balance between swimming and academics. I also have very big ambitions in the pool. I believe I can become an even better swimmer in the US as Norway does not have the support needed to reach the top of the sport whilst combining it with higher education.

Anything else we should know?

I was born in Norway and both my parents are Hungarian. I can speak Norwegian, English and Hungarian fluently. I currently have a Hungarian coach here in Norway. I have also lived in the UK for three years between 2016 and 2019.
