Interview

What makes you different ?

I think I’m different because I like listening to people and helping them. This quality is necessary to be a good leader. I have a good vision of the game and I push my partners to give the best of themselves. 
On one side, I love competitions and the stress it brings. That’s why, in big competitions, I always manage to give the best of myself. 
On the other side, I don’t like to be below a certain school level so this side helps me for lessons. 

Why do you want to compete in college ?

I want to compete in college because I think it’s a great experience to practice your passion in another country. You learn the culture, the way of playing sports but mainly the way of life.

Volleyball and Life goals

For volleyball goals I want to play at my best level to have fun but also to progress in order to reach the required level to integrate the NCAA Championship in United States. 
My goals in life are to find or develop my passion for volleyball while hoping to balance my professional life as my personal life. I also want to become bilingual to open my mind to others cultures and others countries.

Additional Information

My greatest skill in volleyball is that I am a very good leader for my teammates with a touch of humor. 
For awards I have always had good grades at school level. 
For volleyball level, I have several titles of champions of France and I was elected in the dream team when I was younger at the end of the U13 French Cup
