As a volleyball enthusiast, I played for my university at BUCS and regional games, Birmingham Volleyball Club at national league, and organised my own team – Birmingham Oriental Volleyball, which achieved the champion title twice at inter-university tournaments.
I also skydived near Nottingham with Skydiving Society every month!
