Meet, Leila What have you learned about yourself through taking part in rowing? Rowing has taught me that you can push yourself further than you think you can, and that the majority of the time it is my head that holds me back not my ability. I think that I am mentally stronger since starting rowing and I’m pushing myself even further. What would your advice be to fellow students who are thinking of joining a rowing club? It will be hard but the rewards are great. You make new friends and get great satisfaction from achieving the targets you have set yourself. You can learn to row, or join a boat club with LYR.
