I met my future girlfriend there, alongside many of my closest friends at Berry now and also got closer to the few I’d already met. It was a night of nothing but fun, whether it was sumo wrestling or roasting marshmallows and one of the times I realized Berry was the place I was meant to be for the next four years.
