What were your preconceptions of Oxford or Univ before you started here?
I thought Oxford was an institution for the brightest, most sophisticated and confident of people (definitely couldn’t imagine I would become part of it!)
What do you remember about your first day at Univ?
The buzz of activity as other Freshers and their families were arriving all at the same time, everybody looking as apprehensive and excited as I was.
Who at Univ who really inspired you?
All of my closest friends and peers at Univ have been instrumental in shaping who I have become – I still take inspiration from some of them even now…
Do you have one outstanding memory?
Collectively, my whole experience at Univ has been outstanding!
In what way do you think Univ shaped you?
I became a lot more independent and made bolder choices in life as I became more aware of the unlimited opportunities out there in the world.
How important do you think a project like the Young Univ Gallery is?
I think this project is very special because it showcases the diverse range of opportunities available both to people after they leave Univ.
How did it feel to be selected to take part?
I was very honoured to be asked and delighted to stay connected with Univ.
