What this award means to him: After jumping head first into second-year courses, it’s nice to have some benefit come out of being a frosh. I’m honoured that MUN has chosen me as a representative in London this year. I promise that any embarrassment I cause will not escalate into an international fiasco – to say anything more might be lying.
