What makes you different?
What makes me different is that I never give up and always try to find a way to improve myself. I am ready for working, exhaustion and struggle to make my dreams come true.
During my time in college I would like to improve my swimming results and to grow as a person.
Why do you want to compete in college?
The reason I want to compete in college is the strong competition from the best swimmers in the world. This rivalry can help me build my character. Of course I would like to finish my degree with honors and prepare for a life after my sports career.

My swimming goals are to participate at the Olympic Games, European Aquatics Championships and World Aquatics Championship. My life goal has always been to become an engineer like my father.
Anything else we should know?
