Additional sporting info

I have been play golf since I can remember, and I have won the Under 10th National Order Of Merit, with good positions on follow categories as Under 12th and Under 14th.

What makes you different?

My self-preservation and working ability, as well as my determination to achieve my golf goals, are my biggest weapons that make me believe that I will succeed. From the point of view of field performance, my mental strength is undoubtedly an added value in my game.

Why do you want to compete in college?

In Portugal we do not have an education system that makes study and sports compatible, which makes it impossible to study and play golf at the same time. Hence I want to take the opportunity to continue my academic life, where I can play golf at a high level in parallel.

College Goals?

From an academic point of view, I want to graduate in Management. From a sports point of view, I want to play golf at the highest University level and help my University win as many titles as possible.

Anything else we should know?

Besides golf, I really like music and computers. But Golf it’s my great passion.
