What makes you different?
I have been blessed with talent, that talent is track and field. Although growing up in a rough background, I believed that I could change my future despite my beginnings. I have done hours of community services from feeding schemes to playing and engaging with children from disadvantaged communities.
Why do you want to compete in college?
College in America has a higher level of competition and is probably the highest competing level for university students. I want to be in a very competitive environment where I will be surrounded by hand-working people, people who complement my energy. Colleges in the US also have a good reputation for balancing academics and sport at a very high level. I believe that will help me be the best person I can be.
I want to be in the best institution that I could possibly be in. I want to be NCAA champion one day as well as finish my studies so when I go back to my home to my country I can bring new experiences that I have learned on my journey.
Anything else we should know?
I am the Head of sport and a prefect at my high school. I have a huge passion for leadership and business.
