Interview

What makes you different ?

I realize that the only way to succeed is to work hard and give 100% of myself all the time! Moreover, I notice that the work pays and therefore I am even more motivated to do the maximum every day ! I am serious at school, my grades prove it. I am easy going and very sociable, I like my teammates to be my friends.
I am athletic, among the best in my group. I’m not a leader or a follower, I’m a happy medium.

Why do you want to compete in college ?

Too many athletes are choosing to stop studies in order to try to go pro. Too few of them succeed unfortunately. I want to succeed in Tennis and in studies, and the only way to do it is the U.S College system. I also want to discover a new culture, meet new friends and live the best experience of my life.

 

Tennis and Life goals ?

My first goal is to become a professional tennis player, and I know it will not be for my entire life, that’s why I also need to consider « the after ». Thanks to a diploma (I am still undecided major) probably in Business Finance, I think I could have a great job and live confortable in the future with my own family.

 

My goal is to become a professional player !
