I feel extremely privileged to have experienced so many wonderful opportunities whilst at the University of Stirling. Gaining an insight into the difficulties some of the former military personnel have faced, and continue to face, was invaluable. The experience epitomised exactly what sport is all about; bringing people together that otherwise would never have met, to share stories and make lasting friendships. It's almost imperative that, when you come to university, you join a club or a society. I've grown as a person, learning about the challenges people face in life, and how they can be overcome.
