Interview

What makes you different?

What makes me unique is my consistency in following my goals, firmness when it comes to making quick decisions and open-mindedness. Due to the obstacles I have been through while attending competitions on my own, I have developed into a responsible and self-reliant person. What is more, my ability to easily communicate with people. This skill helped me in building strong relationships. I love a challenge, and as a self-motivated learner, I really enjoy going above and beyond when it comes to tackling new tasks and learning new skills. I find that it’s easy for me to relate to a wide variety of people. For that reason, I really thrive in a team environment.

Why do you want to compete in college?

Since the age of seven I have always been interested in sports, particularly in tennis. I have competed in numerous tournaments all over Europe, as well as on other continents. I would like to continue doing so in college and I can assure you I will succeed when given the opportunity.

College goals?

An obvious goal is to get a degree. However, I also have several personal goals I hope to achieve while attending the College. Some of these goals are to acquire new skills and enhance my current sports abilities, to apply what I learn in the classroom to forward my career, and to feel personal satisfaction of finishing something I started. Already having experience in the sports world has proven to me that it is essential to have skills to maintain and improve daily functions. I’d personally like to continue competing on the same high level.

Tennis and life Goals?

I know everybody should have a goal in their life they strive to get to. Personally, I have many goals that I would like to reach throughout my life. My whole life I have always wanted to become a professional tennis player, graduate from University, and develop a successful business. I strongly believe I will reach all of my desired goals.
