T&F is my passion. I believe that studying in the US will give me the best opportunity to get my degree whilst continuing my T&F career. I am looking forward to committing myself to working hard in the classroom and for my college track team.

I am very goal orientated. Once I have set my goals, I do what I need to do to achieve them. I understand that becoming elite in my chosen sport is a journey, I am prepared to put in the commitment and hard work to attempt to reach my goals and realise my dreams. I only received my first state medal when I was 14, I have seen so many others drop out of the sport because they do not understand that there are ups and downs as you chase being the best that you can be.
One of my advantages is that I love competing and enjoy the big occasions. I want to run and jump against the best; that is how I will improve myself.

The college system in America is widely regarded as the best University based track and field competition in the world. To be able compete at this level and meet my academic goals at the same time is a wonderful opportunity. I would love the chance to be able to train and compete as part of a college team in a sport that is majorly an individual pursuit.

I am aiming to be a successful student and athlete. The measure of my success will be to complete my studies and balance this with my sporting endeavors. As an international student I am looking forward to experiencing life at a college in America.

One of my mottos in life is ‘If you never start, you will never know’. I know I have talent in track & field, how far it will take me I don’t know, but I am prepared to put in the hard yards to find out. My ultimate goal is to compete for my country on the track at the Olympics, along the way I want to refine my skills and gain experience by giving my all to a college track team. On the education front I want to complete a degree, most likely in a sports science field. Combining these will be beneficial in both my future sporting and professional life.
