" I would like to study in the USA as ever since I first visited the country I dreamed of pursuing my knowledge in a country that offers a multitude of opportunities in all walks of life. Growing up I saw all the aspects of life that I dreamed of attaining for myself one day, whether it be on the pitch or off the pitch. When I first visited the US in 2015, I fell in love with the country and made it my biggest goal to reach the country in order to experience the quality of life I have so long dreamed of.
The quality of college football in America is something that cannot be matched anywhere else in the world and it is why I decided to let the ambition inside of me take over so that one day I would be able to represent a college which stands for the same morals and values that I have been brought up with in order to excel in both the classroom and on the field. The country has always been described as “the land of opportunity” and I believe that this description fits me well as I am hungry for new challenges and opportunities and my I will strive for greatness and not quit until I am satisfied."
A little bit about myself. I have grown up in South Africa in a humble home with my parents and older sister. I took to soccer after 9 years of competitive karate in which I competed in all local competitions as well as on the world stage in 2010 where I was fortunate enough to claim a bronze medal for Kumite (fighting). In the dojo, discipline, respect and self-control were drilled into us and these were crucial lessons that I will proudly carry with me for the rest of my life. I am an avid Liverpool FC fan as is the rest of my family, and my favourite player is Alex Morgan. I was first inspired by Alex Morgan after watching the 2015 Women’s World Cup in which she showed me just how important a good work ethic is after she was able to lift the trophy despite an injury-ridden tournament.
Besides playing football, I enjoy spending quality time with my family and friends as well as travelling. I enjoy travelling as it expands my horizons by ensuring I always have an open mind and are ready for new experiences.
I would like to study industrial psychology or marketing."
