"The process was so simple!"

Nadia Fanjul (track & field) | Columbia College

2 years ago I was selected by NSR through area director, Jose Mostajo. The process was simple thanks to his friendly and open communication with me. He was always available to help and resolved any doubt that came up during the university selection process, helping me to make the best choice. Now, I find myself 1 week away from leaving Spain to begin my athletic and academic career in the States, and I must say that if I had the chance to do the process all over again, I would. I would do it again since athletics are such an important part of my life and, thanks to NSR, I will be able to combine that with my studies. Hace dos años fui fichada por la empresa NSR a través de José Mostajo. El proceso fue bastante sencillo gracias a su trato cordial y abierto. Él siempre se ha mostrado disponible y ha contestado eficientemente cualquier duda que me ha surgido durante la selección de universidad ayudándome a elegir la opción más adecuada. Finalmente ya me encuentro a una semana de irme y he de decir que si me dieran a elegir la opción de repetir toda la experiencia lo volvería a hacer ya que me ha demostrado cuan importante es para mi el deporte y como gracias a NSR voy a poder compaginarlo con mis estudios.

"Consejos profesionales"

Miriam Cardoner (volleyball) | Missouri State University - West Plains

Desde el primer día NSR me ha ayudado en todo momento, primero explicándome cómo funcionaba todo, lo que podía lograr, mis posibilidades y a que aspirábamos. Jose ha estado en todo momento a mi disposición para ayudarme en dudas que se han presentado al largo del proceso de búsqueda de la universidad, cómo por ejemplo el funcionamiento de las becas, las diferentes ligas, el funcionamiento de las universidades allí… A lo largo del proceso he recibido muchas ofertas y en este aspecto ha sido clave Jose que me ayudaba diciéndome que era lo que me ofrecían y su opinión, cuales eren buenas ofertas y tendría que considerarlas o cuáles no. A la recta final del proceso para elegir una universidad, había 3 universidades interesadas, fue en ese momento cuando Jose me ayudo explicándome las diferencias entre las tres ofertas que tenía y que pasaría en el caso de que eligiera cualquiera de las tres. Finalmente, con la ayuda de NSR junto a decisiones familiares y mías me decanté por Missouri State University - West Plains, que me ofreció una beca completa. La verdad es que me sentí muy bien al elegir esta opción, y agradezco mucho la ayuda que me ha proporcionado NSR. Me han ayudado y me han llevado a lograr cumplir un sueño, ir a jugar a voleibol a los Estados Unidos en una maravillosa universidad como la que he escogido. Miriam Cardoner

"A great help!"

Lucia Suarez (track & field) | Columbia college

The truth is that it never crossed my mind to go to study in the US, it all started with a message from José Manuel Mostajo, in which he told me that with my times (although they were not anything special) Of getting a scholarship at an American university.

 From the beginning, the trust and closeness of Jose made the idea of ​​going to the US start to prowl around in my head. Soon he came to Spain and met with me and my parents to talk to us in person about the whole process and solve the doubts we had, we got an incredible impression and finally took the step. And although at first we were a little afraid because of the little that we knew about the subject, in the end everything was very easy, because NSR, and especially Jose M. Mostajo, took care of guiding us and carrying out all process, making contact with Coaches, universities ... he was always available to solve my doubts, and to help me in everything. 

As a result of this good work, we finally got answers from several universities that were interested, and we achieved our goal, a full scholarship in one of them. I am very grateful to José M. Mostajo, for his closeness and commitment and to NSR, for making everything so easy and allowing me to take advantage of this opportunity that I did not even know existed
