A Word From Emily

“As an elite athlete whose speciality is in track, I seek to broaden my horizons and explore a global field in which to compete. Furthermore, I seek an academically enriched environment where I may optimise my learning. The notion of US College is particularly appealing, as it will enable me to extend and consolidate my athletic skills as well as the immersive and global environment of College life. As a strongly academic student, I believe that I will enrich your College as well as being a competitive and positive track team member.”
