Hey, I’m Ruban and I’m from Stoke, England. I’m studying Medicine at the University of Nottingham and currently taking a year out to travel and volunteer.
How many years have you worked at CCB?: This will be my first year at Camp Carolina.
What is your must bring item to CCB?: An open mind and plenty of enthusiasm :)
What is your favorite hobby/sport/thing to do during your free time?: My favorite sport is climbing but I also enjoy boxing and skateboarding. If I want to relax I like reading, listening to music and playing my ukulele. In general, I just love trying new things and I’m always up for an adventure or a deep conversation.
What are you famous for?: Being a quick learner and being able to push myself out of my comfort zone and take risks. Also, I can solve a Rubik’s cube in under two minutes and I have a phobia of butterflies.
What are you most proud of/biggest achievement in life so far?: My greatest achievement is learning to live in the present moment and striving to live life to the fullest because in the end, life is short and you only get one shot.
What are you most looking forward to about CCB?: I can’t wait to experience American culture, meet people from all around the world and just have a fun time!
What impact are you most excited to make this year at CCB?: I’m really looking forward to passing on my passion of climbing to the campers. I would love to help them overcome their fears and try something new, and have an amazing time while doing it.
