I remember coaching you on the river during your first term at university – so many early cold starts and lots of near-collisions with other novice crews (as is always the way in Mich term), but it was always a lot of fun! We bumped into each other around college and you always had a beaming smile and were so full of positive energy. We exchanged a few messages after I left uni but I am sorry that we didn’t keep in touch more. I was so saddened to hear about your illness and passing; you achieved so much in far too short a life and certainly left an impression on me. Rest in Peace, Baraka.
