I chose Southampton because sailing has always been a big part of my life. It is my favourite sport, and there are some great sailing opportunities on offer here. A highlight was winning the University National Keel Boat Championships, which was a great achievement.

I recently completed a three-month internship working with Sir Ben Ainslie at LandRover BAR in Portsmouth, where I was part of the sustainability team. It has been good to get some valuable work experience early on in my degree. I have been thinking of going into a career involved with composite materials or renewable energies, and my internship at BAR has given me an insight into these areas, and has definitely grown my interest.
