01 Apr How I became a college student-athlete in the US
Making decisions is tough. Especially when you are young.
Did I have a clue what to do after high school graduation?
To be honest, no I didn’t. Which direction do I want to go? What do I want to study? How can I combine my passion for sports and my desire to receive an academic degree?
No easy questions for an 18-year-old teenager.
„What are my favorite activities besides sports and school?“ I asked myself. “I like to travel and experience new cultures” Good. So, let’ resume: I like to study, focus on both my sporting and academic career, receive an international degree, and travel the world to make new friends from foreign cultures. That sounds like a plan. But how?
Then, I was introduced to the unlimited possibilities of #collegesports in the USA. „Wow. That is exactly what I am willing to do“, I thought.
This was the day I decided to become a college student-athlete in the USA.
When I look back, one of the best decisions I have made so far.
No worries if you haven’t made any plans for your future. Just focus on your passion to find out what you can and where you want to go. Let the adventure begin!
