About Athlete

Over the last two years I have had to learn to adapt to new situations at a rapid pace as all the curveballs were thrown my way (COVID, riots and civil unrest). I was able to do this in my final year of high school while still achieving an extremely high level. This year in my first year of university I have had to learn to adapt to living on my own and using my time and resources to the best of my ability. I believe with everything I have endured that I will be a great addition to any team as I know for a fact I will be able to give my everything into both my Golf and academics.
