Introduction

The main aim in my life at the moment is to manage to combine successfully my academic studies and sports career. I am able to work hard and under pressure, this only gives me power to continue forward. I am highly motivated to contribute to the success of my future college team and to take part in the conquest of new victories. I am determined not to leave behind my studies, as it is nearly equally important for me.

Interview

What makes you different

What makes me different is the way I approach both swimming and my life. I have my own world and I live and follow it. I follow my goals, my dreams and struggle with all the difficulties that life gives me.

College goals

I want college to help me grow and become a thinking person ready for life.

Why do you want to compete in college?

Because it teaches team spirit. You should learn how to win, how to support each other. This builds you as a person who helps himself and helps others because they are a team.

Swimming and life Goals?

Swimming is my life. Over time, it has turned from a hobby into the key to my future. I want the university to build me as a thinking person who knows what is best for him. I want to have a cause and fight for it every day until I achieve absolute peace.
