I have written for one of the local student newspapers, Activate, for the past 3 years. It forms part of my Journalism portfolio, but I also quite enjoy it, though I have slacked on the reporting this year as my schedule got busier.

I wrote this story a few weeks after I had happened to sit next to Simon on the bus to do the Pick ‘n’ Pay Cape Argus cycle race in Cape town, in March 2013. I had never met him before, but we were in the same dining hall, so writing it worked out quite well. He’s a great guy and a really inspiring cyclist.

Natalie is studying in the same department as I am, but she is doing her Masters in Human Kinetics and Ergonomics. She hasn’t been doing these sports for all that long, but she is really naturally gifted and dedicated to them. She’s also seriously friendly.
