What makes you different ?
The things that make me different and unique are my warrior spirit and my serious. I am really ready to do anything to win, whoever the opponent, whoever the score and whoever the tournament. When I am entering the tennis court, I am there to win and nothing else and when I do something, I do it properly and thoroughly.
Why do you want to compete in college ?
I have been following the NCCA championships for several years because I love the team spirit that emerges from this federation and I think there is a very good tennis level in college. All this makes me want to come to the USA because I think that my mentality fits to the college philosophy so I am convinced that I have my place there. On top of that, I have the possibility to combine high level tennis with great studies, to travel, to have an experience in another country, and to meet new people so I want to try my luck and to come to the USA to compete in college.
