Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award
I met the challenge of achieving the Gold Award outside of school. This commitment was rewarded with an appreciation of team building, cooperation and perseverance in demanding environments with new colleagues.
In addition to teaching the discipline, I regularly kayak with groups on grade 5 whitewater. Excellent teamwork and self-reliance are essential in guaranteeing a safe outcome. I have organised kayaking trips in the UK and overseas, which has developed my ability to plan, communicate and find practical solutions.
I have been an active flying member of a volunteer run gliding club for several years. This complex activity requires strong organisational skills and self-confidence in order to effectively and safely manage the operation of the airfield. Flying solo has contributed to my decision-making skills and self-discipline.
Whilst at university I regularly participated in a local five-a-side football league.
