I aim to achieve an advanced degree in electrical engineering or computer science. I would really love to compete at high levels of competition in cross country and track as I truly love the sport of running, I enjoy how individual drive and performance helps the team achieve as well as the healthy lifestyle that comes naturally with being a runner.
I am a very coachable runner, I have a lot of optimism about my training and a very positive attitude. I build strong relationships with my teammates and my most important focus is on my teams performance. I have shown very mature level of running as I am able to control my pace very effectively, this is evident in how strong I am able to finish my races, often catching up 2 or 3 positions in the last couple of hundred yards.
Academic strength in math, science and languages make me a consistently performing student. I make very easy conversation and keep a lively environment. I adapt very easily to new environments, probably due to the fact that I was born in South Africa, lived in Switzerland for a few years and then moved with my family to the US in 2009.
I look forward to becoming a high performing student and athlete furthering my academic and running achievements with a college team that share my same work ethics and goals.
