Outside work and in my spare time, I maintain a healthy lifestyle by attending the gym regularly.

I enjoy volunteering with various local and international charities as i continue to support and donate to a few causes that I am passionate about globally e.g., UNHCR & Tearfund.  I also have a passion for languages and currently perfecting my French and Spanish language skills for the future.

Thank you Centric, landlords, and everyone who’s played a part in establishing this fantastic community resource in Brighton. You’ve made a crucial difference to the development of our charity and the health and well-being of a large number of people in need
