Why I should recruit you ?
Because my project comes after a long reflection and I have the maturity and the desire to give the best of myself in order to adapt myself to the best.
Why do you want to compete at US Colleges?
The United States is the country of collegiate sports. I want to take the opportunity to train intensely and represent a university while taking advantage of an athletic scholarship which will support my project.
The American colleges offer a setting adapted to my personal projects both in sports and at school, which I hope to be given the chance to conciliate.
What do you want to achieve in Track/XC?
I would like to progress in my favorite event, the 1500 meters. For that, I have to improve my weak points: flexibility and bodybuilding.
College and life goals?
I would like to go to the United States to speak English fluently, I already speak French and Spanish fluently. I would also like to learn about the company culture in the United States, which I think is very positive and dynamic. Professionally, I would like to find a transatlantic import / export company.
Anything to add
I practice athletics since 2015 and I’ve made progress every year. I am aware that I still have many aspects to improve in order to give the best of myself and to show off all my physical abilities.
