Personal Statement

My unending passion for polo sparked the first time I touched the polo ball in grade 4. The sport itself is electrifying and invigorating and I also have a passion for the team, travel, meeting new people and experiencing tournaments and games on the highest levels. I have had the honor of being voted captain 4 times which has taught me that the game is about each athlete and the fact that it takes "a team to win championships.” Water polo has taught me a lot and I am determined to keep improving and learning. My highlight so far, was making the South African national team, training at the Olympic camp in December 2020 and soon to be traveling back to CT with the U20 SA training squad. In academics, I have found my passion and niche in programming and I am wanting to pursue a degree in computer science or sport. I have an interest in IT security and I enjoy thinking outside box and problem solving. I consider myself to be an all rounder. I believe in going the extra mile and never compromising on effort. I believe that talent and experience in the pool (currently 113 caps in the St Stithians college 1st team,) a high fitness rate, being a team player and commitment, in combination, are essential for long term success whether it be in my water polo or in my studies. I've also had the privilege of traveling to Serbia, Montenegro, Italy and USA on tour. I was blown away playing on tour in California in 2019! Studying and playing college water polo would be my biggest dream
