Apart from being a student, I enjoy most of my time being outdoors. In the summer during the warmer months, I enjoy trekking, going on a road trip around the island, camping, fishing, and swimming.

When forced indoors, I play multiplayer video games and watch an enormous amount of cooking shows. I am an aspiring chef, and I spend a large amount of my free time exploring the latest technology advancements in language technology and machine learning.
