I am a Civil Engineering student at the University of Cape Town. I am from Mauritius.

I was the captain of my soccer team in high school. During my gap year after I finished high school, I went to less fortunate regions in Mauritius to teach the children Mathematics, French and English. I was doing jujitsu when I was in Mauritius, attaining a blue belt. I was also tasked by my trainer to teach the children the proper technique and to make them work on their stamina and agility.
