“Every [FYP] lecture is fantastic. You leave in awe and really just thinking. It brings new meaning to things you’ve read. It’s revelatory.”

What has receiving the Donald R. Sobey Family Scholarship meant to you?

“It’s a long way and expensive to travel back and forth to Victoria. [The scholarship] allowed me to come to King’s. It’s a large weight off my shoulders.”

How has King’s made an impression on you?

“People have profound and meaningful conversations just casually. You can find people that share your interests, like impressionist painting or romantic, classical music…There’s a concentration of people with very profound knowledge bases. And people who are excited and willing to share their ideas and knowledge.

What is your favourite memory of King’s so far?
