Favourite thing about Christ Church:

My favourite thing about Christ Church is the rich community that transcends field-of-study, year group and background. 

Fun fact about yourself / what you are most excited to talk to alumni about:

I thoroughly look forwards to speaking to alumni about their experiences at the House, hearing the traditions that have stayed the same and those that have changed. I am a keen skier and rower, and have a deep-seated interest in immunology and biomedical research. I’m most excited to hear from alumni who have progressed on from the House, and I look forward to learning from their life experience.

Favourite thing about Christ Church:

I love that close-knit friendship groups that form in such a big college, where you're bound to find someone who's had similar experiences to you. Despite its size, everyone's still friendly and knows each other, which creates a welcoming atmosphere in that you always know someone somewhere you want to catch up with. 

Fun fact about yourself / what you are most excited to talk to alumni about:

I'm excited to talk about what alumni loved most about their Christ Church and if there's any similarities to today! I'd also love to get some inspiration from the career paths of people who have been in my position.

Favourite thing about Christ Church:

What I love most about Christ Church is how the College fosters stimulating conversations on a variety of topics both inside and outside of tutorials. During my four years here, I think I have talked about nearly everything over dinner in Hall, from Romantic poetry to thermodynamics. The ideas that swirl about the College are exciting, and inspiring!

Fun fact about yourself / what you are most excited to talk to alumni about:

I’m definitely looking forward to hearing about how much college life has changed over the years, but I’m equally excited to see how much has stayed the same. It’ll be great to hear how Christ Church’s cherished traditions have touched so many so lives.

Favourite Thing About Christ Church:

I think my favourite thing about Christ Church is probably the Meadows; I particularly enjoy walking around them in the evenings, and it was nice to see the cows in Michaelmas before the flooding forced their relocation. The Great Hall is a close second; getting to eat in there every evening is lovely.
