Interview

Why do you want to compete in college

The US is the only place for me where it is possible to study and play soccer at the same time – both on a really good level. In all other cases, I would have to sacrifice one of them which would not be the optimal thing to do.

College goals

My goals are to be successful when it comes to my education and sports career. I want to study hard, adapt in the new environment and be a part of a team.

Soccer and life Goals?

‘There is nothing better than to be able to put food on the table via your hobby’ - that was said by my former soccer coach, Krasimir Dimitrov, who was a professional soccer player. This is exactly how I want it to be.

Anything else we should know?

A specific diet is one of the steps to achieving my objectives in regards to my career so I prefer to follow a certain diet and to cook meals on my own. As a result of this, I started looking into wellness which lead me to Oriflame where I am currently a consultant specifically for wellness products.
