Interview

What makes you different ?

I have great physical abilities and I am able to train intensely every day to improve myself.
During a match, I managed to raise my level of play.
I am very responsive and very reactive in double.
Tennis has been a real passion since my childhood.  When I am not playing tennis, I read Tennis magazines, I watch tennis videos, so I live tennis.

What do you want to compete in college ?

I was selected to represent my country in south pacific and I loved having to surpass myself for a team. So I would like to play on the U.S college system because American universities represent a dream for me in terms of atmosphere. So I will be able to continue my passion while studying.

College goals

I would like to improve my level of English in order to become bilingual, and possibly study in the field of sport in order to have an American diploma.

Tennis and Life goals

In tennis, I would like to have a lot of fun playing and obviously to progress and reach the best level. Moreover, I would like to win a national title in America and also to win a gold medal during pacific games with New Caledonia.
