Katheryne Valencia Perez is a sophomore international student from Venezuela at Seminole State College.
She was recruited to play on the SSC Women’s Tennis Team by Head Tennis Coach Brian Nelson. After posting a video online highlighting her tennis skills, she landed a showcase in Miami, Florida where she met Coach Nelson for the first time. “Brian was the first coach to talk to me. He believed in me, although I don’t think he understood what I was saying in my interview with him,” said Perez with a chuckle.
