About you I absolutely love trying new things and going on crazy adventures exploring all the wonderful things God has created. I am a very busy person trying to fit in training, practicing my 2 instruments (the Piano and the Violin and I am currently wanting to start the Ukulele as well ) and getting good marks at University. But I really enjoy it all. I believe we must live each day to the fullest constantly challenging ourselves to be a better person. To me, OCR is so much more than just ropes, running and muddy pits - OCR pushes you to your limits and makes you realize that you are capable of so much more when you reach those boundaries. You are only limited to how far your mind can take you…!

Highlight of your sporting career Defiantly coming 1st in the Mixed team for the 120km full moon race Kenetic Race when I was in Gr 8. It was the first long race that I finished, with us starting at 12:00 on Friday and only finishing at 5:30 am the following morning. I not only got to see beautiful parts of our country but I also got to push myself and complete something which most people said a 14-year-old shouldn't be able to do.
