What I'm doing now

I am currently a Fencing Scheme Athlete at a local academy. Apart from training as an athlete, I also assist the national team coach and the President of the Brunei Darussalam Fencing Federation in teaching beginner intakes of the scheme.

My best Lancaster memory

I have many wonderful memories of Lancaster including having a casual pub session after fencing training (even though I don’t drink) and the numerous sessions we had playing Mario Kart. My best memory of Lancaster is probably the Roses tournament. The level of sportsmanship and competitive spirit that Lancaster was able to muster up is just simply amazing and inspiring.

What Lancaster means to me

The years I have spent in Lancaster are probably one of the best couple of years of my life so far. I have met so many wonderful people from all the societies and clubs I have joined over the years I was there. No doubt Lancaster will always be my home away from home.

Why I volunteer as an alumni group co-ordinator

I hope to be able to stay connected with the university and be able to give advice to prospective students as well as to help Lancaster alumni in Brunei grow their network.
