A career highlight
One standout from my (fledgling) career was my participation as a boxer in a debut boxing event held at Cambridge University, in association with Wilder Student Events. Not only did I undertake an intense nutritional and physical regime in preparation for my fight, but also was responsible for marketing the event to the Cambridge student populace. As this event was the first of its kind to take place in Cambridge, there was also less of a reputation to carry the marketing process. Balancing this commitment alongside the final year of my study of an intense degree tested my time management skills and the marketing aspect developed my resourcefulness. Altogether, I raised over £900 for the event in sponsorship money and ticket sales, to be donated to various charities assisting with key issues such as domestic abuse and homelessness.
