Athletes Dream Cate Gifford | Track & Field - Page 5

Life Goals :
“ I have clear goals both athletic & academic . Athletic : Represent Australia ( long term ), Place at a NCAA championship & continue to remain injury free and improve my times ( short / medium term ) Academic : Become a fully qualified osteopath &/ or physiotherapist and help the next generation of athletes ”
“ I have a proven track record of successfully managing a student-athlete commitment while living over 1600 kilometres away from my family . I could focus on study after training sessions which required me to drive 4 hours to train with my coach . Athletics is my priority , I don ' t put anything ahead of it .. While my friends were off enjoying Summer music festivals , I spent two weeks completing altitude training . These experiences and beliefs will be invaluable in my transition into life as an American college student ”

What makes YOU Different ?

“ Raised in a family which values cultural diversity is a definite asset . From a young age my family have hosted over 50 international students . This made me really understand numerous different cultures . As a result of hosting international students , I have gained a greater understanding of many different cultures and an in-depth knowledge of and an interest in various cultures . Having these life experiences will help me adjust to life in another country ”
