In my free time, I enjoy hanging out with my friends and playing tennis and badminton. I'm also really into DIY crafting.

What Kenul is working on now

Varsity 2024

I am starting to undertake the organization of a Varsity event in collaboration with the University of the West of England, scheduled for the year 2024. This significant undertaking involves the meticulous planning, coordination, and execution of a prestigious inter-university competition. The event aims to foster healthy competition and camaraderie among students while showcasing their athletic talents on a grand stage. This endeavor not only demonstrates my commitment to event management but also highlights my dedication to creating enriching experiences within the realm of higher education.

Faculty Tournaments

I am in the process of strategizing the coordination of faculty-centered tournaments, featuring a carefully curated selection of sports disciplines. This initiative aims to provide an opportunity for faculty members to engage in spirited competition and camaraderie, fostering a dynamic and collaborative environment within the academic community. The meticulous planning and execution of these tournaments underscore my dedication to creating meaningful and inclusive events that contribute to the enhancement of campus experiences.
