I’m a naturally inquisitive person, loving to broaden my horizons and a good challenge by throwing myself into the deep end. I’m a second-year University of Sydney student majoring in Philosophy and Political Economy who in his spare time represents the university in rowing. During the busy semester there are definitely moments when I just take a step back and simply enjoy a good book, a crackling fire, and (if I’m lucky) a theatre performance by one of the many talented groups in Sydney. Performances are a journey of ideas, the types of ideas that make us human. That’s what makes them compelling.
