About Whitney Going to America is an opportunity to combine tennis and studies to improve my level in both of them. I give my best in everything that I start so that I can achieve the best results. I have a great work ethic and if a college can give me a chance to prove my claims I will be really proud to do so.

What makes you different to other athletes? My love to play tennis along with my goals and determination. Tennis is a part of my life and I work hard everyday to progress and improve my game Why do you want to compete in college? Since I was 14 it has been my dream to join an American team. I love to play and work alone but some times it’s hard. Playing on a team is an approach that we never have when we play tennis because tennis is an individual sport. I want to be on a team that all have a common goal; to win a championship. College goals? My demanding schedule allowed me to combine my current studying while gaining top results at a national level. This ability will allow for me to integrate well into the college team I represent. I want to be the No. 1 athlete on the team and will do what it takes to win the National Championship. Life goals? I want to achieve a lot of things but the first is to earn respect and live my life by the sweat of my brow. I want to become a good tennis player and prove that anyone can do something if they really want it. Focus and hard work are the only solution to be great and achieve our goals.

Im ready “I’m ready to take my game to the next level and continue working towards my goal of a National Championship.”
