I came to Newcastle University because of its strong sporting reputation. After completing my undergrad in Politics and spending last season as President of the Boat Club, I now have the fantastic opportunity to have a positive impact on the student sporting experience. and give them the opportunities I had before the pandemic. I know how much of a positive impact sport can have on all of us, so over the course of this academic year, I want to reignite passion and participation across sport.
