What makes you different?
I attended an Academic achiever’s tour to the USA in 2022 and I was very impressed with the schools and cities. I decided after I got back from that trip, that i would take every opportunity to advance my sporting and academic goals in the USA and that is why I joined this program on ASM. I would also like to try and work towards playing golf on a professional level since it has been a dream of mine from the moment I picked up a golf club for the first time. I am very dedicated towards my goals and believe i can achieve them.
Why do you want to compete in college?
I believe that this program is what my golf career needs to be taken to the next level. I would like to play professionally one day if I was given the opportunity to play college golf, I believe it will to open these doors for me.
I want to go study aeronautical and space engineering or mechanical engineering and graduate with a Masters degree from the college.
Anything else we should know?
At the end of last year, I set goals for my golf and planned out how I was going to better my skills, but I was left struggling to do after I sustained an injury to my left knee where I had dislocated it and tore my LCL. Due to this injury, I could not better my golf by the rate I was hoping to do so. My knee is now fully healed, and I have been back on the golf course and driving range working towards my goals and improving my golf.
