Ziharr, finance officer of UBC Thunderbird Dragon Boat Sport Club, first stepped into the waters of the dragon boating world about eight years ago, when he joined his high school team. Since then, he fell in love with the sport and became more involved with it. Aside from paddling, he also coached a junior team with a friend. Despite the challenging workload as a third-year pharmacy student, he believes sticking with the team was one of the best decisions he has made.

"Going into my fifth year paddling with UBC Dragon Boat now, I've seen the team grow with great lengths. Not only did the team raise awareness of dragon boating on campus, the sport also gained more traction within our community. Training with an awesome group of people - friends and coaches, alike - on and off the water brings a lot of positivity and encouragement to push boundaries." - Ziharrphil Magnaye
