2018 Staff Spotlight - James Herity

Since I returned home to Ireland after the last summer at North Star I've been studying Actuarial and Financial Maths as a 2nd year student. I'm studying at Dublin City University in County Dublin. I've taken up a new hobby in wake-boarding on Wednesdays with the surf and sail society at my university. I had a few opportunities at camp last summer to try wake-boarding for the first time and discovered it's something I love.

Last December I had a reunion with some of the North Star 2017 staff in Dublin. It was great to see the lads again who are only a short flight or drive away. Currently I am studying for my second semester exams after a successful first semester. As well as studying I work part time at the Cliff at Lyons as a part-time waiter and shall work there up until my departure for camp.
