What do you want to achieve in Track/XC?
In track, my principal objective is to run 800m sub 1’50” in the short-to-mid term. Moreover, I could be a good addition to any cross-country team as I build up my mileage.
College and life goals?
My first college goal is to graduate in process engineering (bachelor’s degree)and eventually to obtain a master’s degree in the same field.
Professionally, I’d like to integrate the production section of an important industrial company and evolve in order to manage people and have a job that reconcile scientific and human aspects.
Why I should recruit you ?
My motivation and my personal engagement will make me an excellent recruit and team player.
Why do you want to compete at US Colleges?
After two years of post A-Level studies in France in parallel of my track practice, I want to discover a new education system. I know many great stories about French athletes who left France for American universities and it motivates me to pursue a similar path, in the U.S. I want to grow as an athlete and as a man and I am convinced that the U.S. will help me reach these goals.
Being able to conciliate between my studies and my sport in the U.S. would allow me to improve my running as well as my English level.
