Reflections

As if spending a semester abroad at Oxford University were not already enough of a dream come true, reflecting on the time that I spent there makes it all seem like a fairy tale. Not only did Oxford and my tutors re-teach me how to learn, how to read, and how to write, but they gifted me with a sincere and dedicated passion for learning.

I spent early mornings rowing crew on the Thames, weekday afternoons having lunch in pubs where C.S. Lewis used to write, and evenings at English formal balls. Every day was an adventure, every moment was a learning experience, and I will always cherish every second.

All of my photos can be found, in weekly albums, here.
