It would be a dream for me to be a part of a successful college T&F team and at the same time get a college degree with excellent grades. Given the opportunity, I would be very motivated to work hard and passionately in both areas to make that happen

Interview

I have the discipline and tenacity to be successful both as an athlete and a college student, as an example: when I was 12 years old, I decided that I wanted to run every day for a full year, and I did. No matter if I was sick or I had a lot of homework, I never missed running one single day.

To be able to combine what I love the most, track & field training and competing at an elite level, with getting a college degree would be a dream come true for me.

I don’t do anything half-heartedly; my goal is to get a degree with good grades and to compete at the highest level.

My goal is to represent my country on the international track & field stage. Being on a team of high class athletes would be very motivating for me and would help me reach that goal.
Post college I would like to be a doctor, as I have always wanted to make a difference and leave a positive legacy behind.
