The African Studies Centre provided a uniquely Oxford experience that exemplifies the best of Oxford. Added to this was the amazing collaborative spirit displayed by my classmates in terms of sharing materials and ideas, which made the experience all the more worthwhile. Beyond the Centre, I also had an incredible opportunity to be involved in extracurricular activities in the university. The outstanding aspect of my Oxford experience is that I could gain so much in such a short time from such a vibrant academic environment. Did I mention that I also interned at the BBC in London? Yes, that was another treasurable moment for me in the UK. We left Oxford not only equipped with information but also with analytical skills for making sense of information beyond the Centre.
