In an attempt to overcome my fear of heights, I completed my first tandem skydive in my second year, raising money for charity at the same time. This was the start of my adrenaline addiction, and was shortly followed by a bungee jump by the Tyne bridge. I also took up running, something I had been strongly averse to in the years prior!
Whilst in Tanzania, I took part in several COCO volunteer projects such as building a Vocational Training Centre and living with an indigenous Maasai tribe for two weeks teaching maths, English and Swahili to nursery children. It was a thrilling and wholesome end to my undergraduate life.
