“My favourite memory from Wellington is winning the St Joseph's National Rugby Festival.”

What are you doing now?

After leaving Wellington College I decided to take a year out. For 6 months I worked at Eagle House, where I thoroughly enjoyed being a gap student for two terms. After this I went travelling in Costa Rica for a couple of months before coming back home. I also completed a charity bike ride from John O’Groats to Lands’ End in which my three friends and I raised over £12,000 for charity.

I am now in my second term of first year at Durham University, where I study Economics, History and Mandarin. As well as this, I am a member of the University Rugby Club and many college based sports, such as football and cricket.

What is your favourite memory from Wellington?

My favourite memory from Wellington is winning the St Joseph’s National Rugby Festival. It was a period of time where I was playing the sport I love with my best mates, and so to come away from the festival as winners was amazing, especially as it was the first time we had entered.

Why did you want to be a part of the campaign? What made you want to get involved? 

I believe the campaign is raising money for a very important cause, and therefore to be involved would be very rewarding. I also loved every minute I spent at Wellington, and thus I am keen to help make tangible, positive change within the college community.
