Interview

What makes you different?

Tennis has taught me some things I think many people do not know-discipline, hard work, motivation, strong psyche, strong will. I dare claim to have those qualities and that’s what makes the difference between me and most of the others at this age.

Why do you want to compete in college?


I love playing in a team and the team spirit is the one thing tennis is lacking. In college I know I can fully experience it. Another thing is, I never had any kind of problems in studying and school in general so I’m confident enough to think that these good results will boost my performance in both sport and education.

College goals


A Master’s degree in Psychology is my goal. Psychology also plays a big role particularly in tennis and I’m really excited and motivated to give my best in order to combine the two of them.

Tennis and life Goals?


What I want is to make everyone that has helped me during the past years proud of me and what I’ve become. Of course I seek to become a professional tennis player and compete at the highest level.

Anything else we should know?


I’m experienced in team sports. I have previously played football, basketball and volleyball in schools competitions. Right now I am actively playing table tennis for my school.
