On becoming a teacher: 
I enjoy working with people and making a difference in their lives. I'm passionate about the subjects I teach, and I love explaining their theories and workings. I love inspiring people too. When a student acknowledges you for helping them accomplish something and change their beliefs about what’s possible, you get a huge surge of satisfaction. 

I'm an ultra-runner and cyclist, and I love adventurous challenges that push my limits. These interests reflect my traits of being a risk-taker, self-confident, determined, selfmotivated and resilient. I hope these qualities benefit my students. 

What do you most enjoy about teaching?
When a student acknowledges you for helping them accomplish something and change their beliefs about what’s possible.  

An admirable person: 
Richard Branson: he's an adventurer, a successful businessman and a humble person rolled into one. My idol.

An inspirational person: 
Nelson Mandela. Even after 27 years in prison, he emerged without bitterness towards his captors and continued fighting for his beliefs. My hero.

Top tip to my younger self: 
Take more risks. You don't learn anything by staying in your comfort zone; you only grow and develop by facing your fears and doing what makes you feel uncomfortable.
