My objective is to get a quality education, while playing college tennis and compete against top university teams. I am motivated and ready to do whatever it takes and really believe that I am able to handle all challenges in order to reach the best results in both the academic and tennis fields. I am aware that only with hard work and dedication, all this can happen. For me it will be a great honor to be part of the university tennis team and to contribute to its successful performance. In addition, I would like to keep and increase the college image in front of the academic and sport societies.
