The Person

  • Those who know Fred describe him as someone who is organised, resilient, and is trustworthy.

  • Fred’s life experiences (growing up with a sister that has a severe disability) have given him a unique and important perspective that allows him to understand and empathise with those who are different, or disabled, and this perspective has given him maturity beyond his years.

  • While Fred’s passion is rowing, he also understands the invaluable importance education will play in his life, and is looking forward to merging his love of rowing with a degree from an American institution.

  • See link to School Character Reference below
