Describe your time in the Extreme Sports Society with one word. Why did you choose this one in particular?Ani: Awesome!!! It’s because it has been so much fun and I have met so many amazing people, had fun skiing and partying in the Alps and going out with everyone for our socials in London. Made some great friends too!Jane: Amazing, because of the amazing people that I went with to all the trips that were organised by Extreme Sports Society.
What was the most dangerous situation you found yourself into?Ani: I am not a fan of heights, so when I first started skiing down the mountains at high altitudes I would get worried every time I looked down and saw how high up I was. You get used to it though!Jane: Last year, I went with my friends to do windsurfing in Crimea (Ukraine). The wind was so powerful that I lost control of the sail and I almost ended up in the open sea.
