In Fall of 2015, I participated in UT’s Oxford Semester Abroad programme. This opportunity provided me the chance to study global perspectives of agriculture. My primary tutorial focused on the anthropological and environmental aspects of agricultural systems, while my secondary tutorial elucidated the relationship between food and public health. My experience supplemented my biology degree through exposure to topics in the social sciences, refinement of my analytical and writing skills, and focus on primary literature and dyadic communication. At my current internship at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, I often draw upon the scientific concepts I learned at Oxford, as well as the softer skills of travelling and living in a new culture. On a more personal note, my fondest memories of my Oxford experience were nightly formal dinners in the Christ Church College grand hall with my classmates, who are now some of my closest lifelong friends. I am very grateful to have had this experience and I would be elated to speak with anyone interested in applying.
