    A new environment

    Coming from a state school, first-generation background, I was quite apprehensive about coming to university, but I can honestly say that my time here so far has been nothing short of incredible. I’m sure as offer holders you are eager to find out more about university life, whilst also probably being nervous and uncertain about the months ahead – I completely understand those feelings!

    Managing different attitudes to living with COVID-19

    While some are committed to continuing with health measures, others favour the removal of restrictions to return to a more pre-pandemic way of life. There are many reasons for these differences including a function of different nationalities, backgrounds, health vulnerabilities or personalities.

    Living with Pure O

    The best way for me to explain Pure O (or Pure OCD – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) is firstly to tell you that organising your pens on your desk, so they look pretty, or being mildly irritated that someone didn’t fully clean the whiteboard does not mean that you have OCD. No, OCD is not the luxury of being able to choose whether your stationary looks neat but an inescapable dread and anxiety when compulsions are not or cannot be fulfilled.

    The journey so far

    I am from a small town just outside Boston, Massachusetts in the US. I did my undergraduate degree at the state school University of Massachusetts Amherst where I got my Bachelor’s in Linguistics and Spanish. As of now, I am currently in the graduate programme as an MPhil student studying Linguistics, Phonetics, and Philology. Outside of my department, I try to be very sociable within my Middle Common Room (MCR) at St. Hugh’s College, and I am also a member of the Oxford Blues Swim team.
