Interview

What makes you different?

I'm very passionate and hard working. Throughout those 11 years of playing tennis my will of getting better never faded and I still love learning and getting better at it. I do also think that being a positive person helps me to make the best out of myself.

Why do you want to play in the U.S college system?

First of all, it is extremely important for me to play in the U.S college system because I know that it can help me to reach my goals of becoming a better tennis player while learning about the journalism job.
I do also think that studying in an other country with a different culture is an incredible life experience. On top of that, it would also allow me to get better in English and eventually become perfectly bilingual.

Academic objectives

I want to study Journalism and learn everything possible to become a good and respected journalist.

Athletic and professional Objectives

Become a professional tennis player and after my tennis career is over fully to concentrate of becoming a great journalist.

Other details that you would like to add

I want to participate in the U.S college tennis tournaments that always appeared very challenging to me. I know they can be a great way for me to improve and always push myself further away from my limits.
