I have been playing tennis since I was 4 years old, having both successful, and unsuccessful periods. However, I never lost the enthusiasm in practicing this amazing sport. I am now starting to recognize the importance of an education system that could provide me with a good schooling level. I am firmly convinced that the American colleges would give me all the means to achieve two main goals: obtain a Bachelor's degree in economics, and strength my tennis abilities (mental, physical and technical). I believe that the role of student-athlete fits well many of my aspirations.
