HPOTW: Congratulations To Star of The Week Kimberley Efonye of Fresno, California, U.S.A.
Kimberley Efonye is a student athlete born to a Nigerian father and a Belgian mother. She goes by the name Kim, but often called "the fastest female runner in Belgium" because of her title as the National Champion of the female 400m in Belgium.
So young and in her very early 20s, Kim's success in Belgium has drawn a world class attention and recognition to her. As soon as she stepped into the spotlight, every country wanted to be identified with her.
Call her the female Usain Bolt. Kim is so blessed, she received 71 scholarships from schools in the United States of America and for reasons best known to beautiful athlete, she accepted the offer from Fresno State University in California and has recently relocated to Fresno, California for school and in pursuit of her career.
The Business Administration student said she is enjoying her new school and the American system in general. Many years from now, she hopes to start her own business and be able to give back to the society.
This is one of the photos that best represents Kim as a 'Champ.' She has that amazing body of an athlete that she could pass for a high model as well.
They say "Unto whom much is given, much is expected." Efonye achieved her victory through hardwork and perserverence. Unlike most teens, she focused on the two important things that matters most to her - education and career. You would wonder how she joggles school and sports and still look this cute? She keeps good grades at school and as a national champion title holder, she is also preparing for 2016.
Don't get her wrong though, she loves people and enjoys being around her family and friends. When she is not studying or training, she loves shopping and spending time with her girlfriends.
She speaks Dutch, English and French.
