"Taking a scholarship in the USA for track and field was one of the best decisions I have made. Through being recruited, many opportunities were presented to further my high jumping abilities which I didn't have available in my home environment. In the decision making process, I considered my options carefully then decided that the USA college system was my best system to pursue both my athletic and career ambitions"
