Beyond the Boat…

In the past I have enjoyed swimming and playing lacrosse. For 12 years I’ve been doing Karate and am now a first dan black belt! I love hanging out with my friends and going to London to art galleries or museums.


I started rowing at school and have been rowing for 3 years now. The squad I trained with at school was very small so it is great to be part of a such a big supportive group at CUWBC. Everyone is so driven and friendly and it is a great atmosphere in the boathouse.
