About me

I am a keen sportsman. As Queens' College Second XI Football captain, I developed my teamwork and leadership skills simultaneously. In the 2013-14 season, I helped to guide our team to the division title and I was the top goal-scorer.

I also play cricket and opened the batting for Queens' College between 2012 and 2015. The peak of my cricketing career came when I bowled to Brian Lara, who holds the highest individual scores in test and first class cricket - needless to say, he had no trouble scoring runs off my bowling.

In 2014, I also helped to create and teach a life-planning course for adult orphans in Rwanda. Government policy meant the orphanage for genocide survivors was soon to shut, but the orphans aged 18-26 needed help in getting a job to economically support themselves. I created sessions in CV-writing, interview preparation and developing relevant occupational skills. As a result of these lessons, I helped some of the orph...
