What I do

I was the youngest person ever to get put through the PGL Senior Development Paddler scheme. After one season working for PGL in the Ardeche in France, I achieved my UKCC Level 2, 4 Star canoe and kayak. I’m now a 5 star white water kayak leader and soon I will be heading out to Zambia to kayak the Zambezi River - some of the biggest rapids in the world. I eventually want to start my own business running courses in paddle sports.

How Hartpury helped to get me there:

I loved the course at Hartpury as it was fantastic being able to get out twice a week to do activities and not just be based in a classroom. Plus the contacts the lecturers have are such a big help.
