What makes me different is that I live in a small rural town of about 4000 people and have to train mostly on my own,I travel 1 hour and 15 minutes to train at a track 3 times a week, the rest of my training is done at my school grounds and road running. I’m self motivated and disciplined to train and study, I set goals and always work hard to achieve them. where I live I’m the only person who competes in athletics, cross country and road running at national level so I’m quite used to taking responsibility for my own sporting outcomes . I’m very motivated, honest and strive to be the Best.

College will give me the opportunity to reach my athletic potential by training and competing at an elite level. The idea of training and competing within a college team environment motivates and excites me, and will help achieve my goal of representing my country on the international stage.

I want to come out with a degree and compete at the highest level, this opportunity allows me to do both. I also would like to be running qualifying times for the Olympics and Commonwealth games when I finish collage. So, I will be at the peak of my successful career when I compete at these two events in 2024 and 2026.

I want to represent New Zealand at the Olympics and the Commonwealth games and I want to travel the world doing track running and cross country. And ultimately to be the best that I can be and to do running as my job. I also want to give back to my sport by being a coach or physical education teacher, because I want to still be involved in my running career.
