Trinity, CUSWPC, 2015-2019
- Where are you now?
I am currently working at the Boston Consulting Group, a management consultancy. I have worked on multiple topics, but primarily focused on the decarbonization topic. Working at a firm like this you come across a healthy concentration of Hawks & Ospreys ….
- What are your sporting career highlights?
I was a member of the University Water Polo team from 2016 – 2018. My fondest memory was in my first year, where we managed to clinch a Varsity win in the final minute of the match, overcoming what had been a 5 year rut in the 2nds Varsity team. The team chemistry was phenomenal.
- What are your fondest memories of Cambridge Sport and The Hawks’ Club?
Taking a girl (a CUSWPC member herself) I was trying to impress for a date at the Hawks Club. She was still lukewarm about me, and I thought that a dinner at one of Cambridge’s finest establishments would help change her mind. We ended up having a lovely evening, though I only found out fours years into our relationship that the Vegetarian Option she got was not up to par. Thank goodness I had great chat….
Ps. I can testify that the club’s vegetarian options are now up to par – well done chef!
- What do you miss most about Cambridge/The Hawks’ Club?
The Stories . Sitting in the bar, hearing people regail wild sporting moments or post match shenanigans was always a delight. Having recently visited the club it was great to see Ed Hyde + Committee have still managed to keep up the atmosphere.
- If you could relive any sporting moment from your lifetime, what would it be and why?
Malaysia’s water polo team in the SEA games, where they finished 3rd . My country ended up surpassing expectations and it was great to see many of my old club team mates leading the national charge.
