I'm interested in different cultures and traditions, outdoors activities (hiking, camping), interior design and cinema. I love trying to speak new languages, cooking and planning future travels and projects. I'm the clueless and annoyingly happy part of the team, however I will try my best to learn new skills in order to not be a pain in the backside for my super-skilled teammates and actually help complete this challenge.

Team Fundraising:  Target £6,000 (NZ$13,350)
