Beyond the Boat
A natural performer, Erin spent much of her free time at school acting, singing and performing, “dreaming of being in the West End”. During fresher’s week at university she tried out rowing and was immediately hooked -“I have swapped one type of performance for another!”
Erin is a keen baker, so unsurprisingly Mary Berry would be invited to her dream dinner party, along with Elizabeth I and Barack Obama. Listening to familiar pop music keeps her focused before racing, but Ed Sheeran and Adele help her to relax.
