What makes you different?

I’m currently on the other side of France from my parents, so I know what it’s like to be away from home. I’m not afraid of adventure, new experiences and challenges. On the contrary, I love it! I think I’ll be able to bring to my team experience, fighting spirit and, of course, my positive mentality. I’m someone who can adapt to any situation and who’s eager to learn. I’m ready for this new challenge and look forward to achieving my sporting and academic goals.

Why do you want to play in the U.S college system?

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted to go to an American university, to play in front of lots of people, to travel to the USA during matches, to discover this sports and school system so different from what I know in France. Secondly, it will enable me to improve my English, gain experience and playing at university will make it possible for me to progress in volleyball while continuing my studies, which are very important to me. Being able to go to university will allow me to achieve all my personal goals.

Volleyball and Life goals

My life goal is to have no regrets, to have reached all my goals, my best volleyball level, to discover the best version of myself before dedicating myself to my professional career. In the future, I’d like to have a job where every day is a new challenge, to wake up every day with the desire to go to work and to keep on having projects. My life goal is clearly to be fulfilled in everything I do. Volleyball has enabled me to acquire this thirst for challenges, to always go further, and that’s what I’ll be putting in place in my professional life..

Additional Information

As well as volleyball, I also love reading. I read a lot of books, it’s something that relaxes me and lets me travel to another world for a while.
