[off-screen] “So, how did you feel when you received your Clarendon scholarship offer?” “I was completely overwhelmed.” “Ecstatic.” “I was really not expecting it!” “Completely mind-blowing.” “Well, I jumped off the chair.” “So the first thing I did when I received my offer was, of course, to Google what the Clarendon scholarship was. And then it immediately becomes very clear that it’s just not a bundle of money but it’s also a very tight community.” “I’d describe the Clarendon scholar community as a very friendly, inclusive place.” “It’s a dynamic community of people who are interested not just in what they’re doing but in what other people are doing.” “The scholarship has really provided quite a bit of a social network.” “When I first arrived, the first people I met were Clarendon scholars, and I’m still friends with them to this day.” “We come together, we appreciate each other’s work, appreciate each other’s research.” “The really unique part of my research is not only taking a picture of what has been damaged but I try to use MRI to measure PH to see which parts of the brain will actually over time get worse and worse.” “My fieldwork is based in Southern Ghana and it’s just fantastic to be able to have felt that I learned so much about the landscape using satellite images, but then to actually go on the ground and meet the people.” “I work on Northern Italy, mostly, and I’m looking specifically at the Este family. What I’m focusing on and what I’m interested in is how pilgrimage affects court culture.” “I’m studying the relationship between logic and programming languages. If you have a good language, that can serve both as a programming language and as a logic, you could write correct software in that language.” “For my research, I am writing a grammar of a language in West Papua, that’s a province belonging to Indonesia.” “Coming to Oxford it was just, almost like a dream, sometimes I still can’t believe it.” “It was very awe-inspiring to arrive, walk where so many other great minds have walked.” “Oxford has made all the difference – I do really think it’s shaped me as a scholar and I’m kind of interested to see where I’m gonna be in three years at the end of this degree.” “I think what makes Clarendon really unique is how diverse it is. I don’t think I’ve ever been part of any community that had more than 50 nationalities in it.” “Oxford made me more humble and more open-minded, and that’s how it changed me.”
