Trinity offers a unique experience that will stay fixed in my heart, and if you embrace all it has to offer, you will grow more than you can imagine.

Being far from my family and relatives, the support networks of staff and friends at Trinity have been my safety net. I am nothing but proud and humbled to be a part of this academic community rich in culture and opportunities. I have been grateful for the extra tutorials and support with my subjects, and have felt encouraged to engage with my degree and to enjoy being a student.

I have also felt encouraged to try new things and put myself out there. The leadership opportunities in the College are priceless and I have tried my best to make the most of them. As a result I have become a more active member of the community, and I have confidence now to take the initiative and make things happen. I have become more independent and thoughtful, and am always inspired by the role models around me – from visiting scholars and resident tutors to fellow students who don’t cease to impress me.
