She’s enjoyed being part of a society with a shared passion for shooting and participating in competitions, bringing home four medals at the County Championships! She is very excited to bring her passion to many other people at university while being captain and is excited to bring more women to the sport, especially by participating in “This Girl Can”! Weird Fact: Natasha was invited to macrobiotic cooking classes at Boy George’s house when she was younger!
