An important sport for me since a very young age, I’ve been playing competitive Tennis for almost ten years. Since I began my studies the opportunities to pursue this sport have diminished.



Musical education played an integral part in my upbringing. I played piano from the age of 8 to the age of 16. Other instruments I played include the trombone and the saxophone, which I have taken up again recently.
