Paige's CV

Paige Knight

Personal Statement
I am a motivated and professional person, I will sit my A-Levels in June 2018. I am predicted excellent grades in my subjects and am looking to attend University this year to study Classics; my studies will include the learning of Latin. I am the current Junior Club Captain at Staines Boat Club, involving both training and competing for the club in rowing but also in their coaching scheme. For the last three years I have trained for 12-14 hours per week and have competed at various competitions including singles, doubles, pairs, quads, fours, eights and octuples. The sport of rowing had given me invaluable skills which I am able to transfer to all aspects of my life. I am also a PADI qualified scuba diver and have dived several times in Mexico. I completed the Advanced course at Chepstow in order to improve my skills in this sport.
