Irvin graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2020 with a Bachelors of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery. In his years of studies he completed a range of placements but his favourite experience was when he went to South Africa and studied the wildlife there. He was part of a team that treated animals such as rhinos and would even spay lions.
Although Irvin has become a vet because he thinks animals are cool, his other hobbies include playing beach volleyball, weight training and is part of an indoor volleyball team. He also loves the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong's' cityscape and is excited to be back in a big city.
