At school I was Deputy Head of House as well as one of only fifteen Senior Prefects. These roles alongside playing in the Rugby 1st XV helped to develop my ability to adapt to different situations and different characters. They have given me a broader understanding of human nature and personalities.
I was proud to be part of the Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme. This initiative helped younger pupils deal with bullying and its impact within schools.
During the summer, I volunteered at a local foodbank in the Bahamas. Every weekend we packed and distributed food to 3,000 families across the small island that I live on. I also had the opportunity to assist Global Empowerment Mission with their Bahamian Computer Initiative in Abaco.
Being at a large English School and then returning home to the island I grew up on in the Bahamas to teach at surf camps and volunteering to do philanthropic work has reinforced my fascination of living in two cultures at once and I hope has developed my ability to communicate with and help understand our diverse world.
