What makes you different ?

I am different from the others for many reasons. Since I started rowing, I have faced many failures but I always motivated myself to achieve my goals. I never give up and this made me very strong mentally. When I give myself a goal, I always do my best to achieve it and even if I fail, then I will work even harder. I know what I want and I am willing to do whatever it takes to get there.

Why do you want to compete in college ?

My goal is to combine sport and studies. In the U.S College system, I will be able to concentrate fully on my studies but also on rowing.
I have been training at a high level for the past 5 years while having classes all day without any special schedule, like a regular student.
Going to the U.S College system will allow me to have a more adapted schedule to perform both in sports and in studies.
Furthermore, I am passionate about competition and I am sure I will find some big challenges competing for a university.

College goals

I would like to graduate from a prestigious university.
I am looking for a good education that will prepare me well to enter in the professional world.

Rowing and Life goals

My goal is to reach the highest level of sport. If I join your college, I want to represent and win everything with you.
Then, I want to become a key rower for the French team and to participate to World and European Rowing Championships, and why not to the Olympic Games.
