I enjoy giving back to the community in my spare time and will be volunteering for Crisis during this Christmas period. I have a passion for traveling as it’s a chance to discover different cultures, meet people, do the things I don’t have time to do when I am at home studying and working. I recently organised a trip to the Seychelles and Zanzibar with friends and had a wonderful
experience. During the vacation/trip I got the chance to read books and took photo’s which I also enjoy.
