What are your main hobbies and interests?
I really enjoy being active and currently shoot archery after picking up the sport whilst studying. I also like going to the gym and I’m a keen powerlifter, which I use to build up my strength, stay heathy and destress.
What music do you like – any specific genre or artists?
I enjoy the heavier side of music. I am a big fan of the British metal core band called Bring Me The Horizon.
What’s your favourite food?
If I had to choose one dish, I’d have to go for Beef Brisket Donburi, which is a South Korean-style stir fry.
What film or boxset would you recommend to others?
I’m not massively into watching TV, but I would definitely recommend The Sopranos and my favourite film is probably Lord Of The Rings because I’m a massive fan of Tolkien.
Do you have a favourite book and why?
Meditations – The Diary of Marcus Aurelius. It’s a really good insight into his philosophy as a leader, the psyche of the man and the struggles he faced mentally, wondering whether he was a good man, a good father and a good leader.
What is your favourite holiday destination?
I’d like to travel to all of the major European countries before I turn 30 in seven years’ time, but my favourite place so far is the Czech Republic, which has amazing food and loads of cultural places to visit.
What are your pet hates?
People who are not very tolerant of others. Or people who are not willing to listen or try to understand why someone has alternative views.
If you could go back in time, what advice would you give your younger self?
Don’t wait for change to happen. Make the changes you want to see.
How would you describe yourself in 5 words?
Patient, understanding, reasonable, organised and methodical.
