What makes you different?

I am always listening to good advices. I always work as hard as possible to achieve my goals. I manage the pressure very well by having confidence in myself. I also really like to get out of my comfort zone by always giving me more and more difficult challenges. I am a great competitor and never like to lose.

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

I really want to compete in college because I want to discover the level of soccer which seems very interesting to me, as well as to be able to discover university life in the United States with a culture different from mine.

College goals

My college goals are to have my diploma as well as to do everything to help the soccer team of my university by bringing it with my future teammates as far as possible.

Soccer and Life goals

My soccer and life goals are first of all to be in a very good university in the usa with a very good soccer team to be the best in our championship, one of my dreams would also be to be drafted in MLS and thus to become pro, I know that it is difficult but I will do everything to make it happen.
