In Oxford I was immersed in a dedicated community of scholars that enriched my personal and academic potential. [This] opportunity taught me how to find a home in entirely new cultures. Something I now consider an essential life skill! Through this I gained the confidence I needed to pursue graduate work abroad. In retrospect, it was truly a necessary capstone in my undergraduate career.”
