Hobbies and Interests.

When I am not studying or in class, I enjoy playing football, watching sport, spending time with friends and visiting cafes. I have done a substantial amount of volunteer work in the past and continue to do so whenever I can. I was actively involved with fundraising for World Vision, volunteer work with fellow Leo members, and helping with Blood Drives at school. I also helped organise students to represent our school at the Cancer Society's Relay for Life and oversaw the fund raising component of the event as well. Currently I am involved with Friend Link, an organisation that arranges for volunteers like myself to visit and spend time with young men who are living with mental disabilities in care homes.
