She is the most decorated American gymnast of all time, and now Simone Biles has her sights set on an even bigger prize.“I was committed to UCLA before I went to the Olympics, and unfortunately I decided, I deferred. And then I didn’t go because after the Olympics things got crazy, I traveled so much.”
西蒙·拜尔斯是有史以来最出色的美国体操运动员,而她现在将目光投向了更大的奖项。在我参加奥运会之前我决心去加利福尼亚大学洛杉矶分校念书,但不幸的是我决定推迟这项决定。然后我没有去,因为奥运会之后事情很乱,我外出的次数太多了。
In her quest for a college degree, Biles’s travels have now led her to the virtual doorstep of an online school.“Hi, everyone.I’m so excited to announce that I’m now a global ambassador for the University of the People,the world’s first tuition free accredited online university.”
在她寻求大学学位的过程中,拜尔斯的行程已经把她带到了网上学校的虚拟台阶上。嗨,大家好。我非常激动地宣布,我现在是人民大学的全球大使,这可是世界上第一个免费且获得认证的在线大学。
The accredited online university offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business,as well as undergraduate degrees in computer science and health science.The university relies solely on donations and volunteer educators from schools like Yale, NYU and UC Berkeley.It’s unconventional approach is perfect for its latest student, whose journey thus far has been anything but ordinary.
这所获得认证的在线大学提供商业学士和工商管理硕士学位,以及计算机科学和健康科学的本科学位。这所大学完全依靠来自耶鲁大学、纽约大学和加州大学伯克利分校等学校的捐赠和志愿教育工作者运行。这种非传统的方式对那些时长外出的学生来说是完美的。
“I haven’t had a traditional school experience for a while, actually going into a classroom and sitting down.And the traditional way won’t work for me and I understand that. So it’s okay... online it is.”
我有一段时间没有上过传统学校的经历了,没有真正走进教室坐下来听课了。传统的授课方式不适合我,这点我深知。所以在线学习很适合我。
Perhaps it’s a bid for a bit of normalcy, after the recent sex abuse scandal involving Larry Nasser rocked the gymnastics wold.Biles’ name was one of the biggest to be added to the list of victims, but she is ready to move on.
最近涉及拉里纳赛尔的性虐待丑闻震动了体操界之后,也许这是一种恢复常态的代价。拜尔斯的名字是受害者名单里最有重量级的一个。但是她已经重振旗鼓整装待发。
“I didn’t want the headlines, once I go out and compete again, to be, you know, that would be the title of me, rather than what I have to offer for this sport.”
一旦我出去重新参加比赛,我不想成为头条,你知道的那将是我的头衔,而不是我能为这项运动提供的东西。
Biles has dreams beyond gymnastics, to pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, with the same determination that has defined her athletic career.
拜尔斯拥有超越体操的梦想,追求商业管理的学士学位,同样的决心也贯穿了她的运动生涯。
“I feel like I’ve always been dedicated, and you know I never stopped until I got what I wanted. So being driven helps.”
我觉得我一直都很专注,在我得到想要的之前我从不止步。所以奋发努力很有用。
