Since I started university in 2018, I have spent each year engaging with student sport, most recently as a member of Ultimate Frisbee. The club is really inclusive and I've met so many lovely people playing as a result of it. Student sport has provided me with lots of opportunities, most notably, going around the country participating in tournaments. My favourite experience at University, was taking part in the Women's Ultimate Frisbee Indoor Nationals, where we placed 5th!

I have been involved with student sport for two years with Korfball I've loved being involved with student sports because of the sense of comradery as well the relations I have formed. By being involved with student sports and AU clubs like Korfball, I have created countless memories and has given me ample opportunities, but I would say the greatest opportunity it gave me was to truly live the university experience and find my confidence.
