Introduction: I aim to take my Sporting talent and Academic ability to the highest level by Studying and competing abroad. I am a dedicated and motivated Student Athlete, determined to reach my fullest potential. I will represent my College with great Leadership, Sportsmanship and Ability. All round, I am a focused Student who is aiming to achieve high results while expressing my passion as a Basketball player and Track Runner.

Education Goals: I intend to study STEM related subjects, for which I have a strength and interest, with the goal of a career in this area. I aim to maintain my strong Academic results following on from my High School achievements, and have the drive to do so.

Life Goals: I aim to be the most successful person I can be in all aspects of my life. My dream is to successfully compete in international Athletic Competitions, and take my Basketball to the highest level I can. I have a will to achieve high Academic results, leading into a successful and enjoyable professional career.

College Goals: Throughout my life, I have successfully balanced my Academic and Athletic talents which has led to significant achievement in both areas. I aim to continue to do this throughout College, whilst refining my interests and becoming the best Student Athlete and Role-Model I can possibly be. By working and training consistently and at a high level, I know that I can push myself to be the best and represent my College at the highest level. As an Athlete I know I have not yet come close to reaching my full potential and believe College placement will support me through the higher levels of coaching and competition. I know I will reach my goals.

Why do you want to compete at College? Competing in a College environment will provide me with a higher level of competition and coaching. I believe this will be to drive my success beyond that which I have currently achieved. Colleges in the USA are renowned for their outstanding level of Sporting talents and I have always wanted to be involved and challenge myself with a new culture.

What makes you different? My philosophy and that of my coaches has always been that I can begin to peak right at College entry time, rather than as a mid teen. Therefore, I have avoided injuries, while building a really strong base for my competitive future. As a lifetime Athlete, I have the experience necessary to maintain dedication, while balancing Academic studies and Athletic performances. I am both a high level Athlete and a high achieving Student, whilst I have also proven my capabilities in leadership roles. I want to be an invaluable member of my College community.
