Community work and leadership roles in Business School: My main focus in leadership has been on health, fitness and sports. In first year, I started and ran open functional fitness sessions twice a week for anyone in the LBS community. In my second year I was president of the LBS Rugby Club.

The club is perhaps the oldest and most active club on campus and is about much more than just sport for many people at LBS. I am proud that my friends and club-alumni trusted me enough to let me lead it.
