It is near the end of Hilary term at Oxford, and I thankfully have made it through the Fifth Week "Blues."
The Oxford Union has also provided a great experience. Recently, I became a member and have since attended a number of events. The Oxford Union regularly hosts notable speakers from all professions and backgrounds, and two of the most interesting to me, so far, have been the Reverend Al Sharpton discussing whether the United States is institutionally racist and London Stock Exchange Group CEO Xavier Rolet examining consumer confidence in markets. Comedians, singers, actors, businesspeople, politicians, and celebrities alike share their views at the Union to provoke and encourage thought. Much like the Center for Entrepreneurship and Political Economy there on campus, the Union adamantly asserts that it does not matter what one thinks so much as that one is thinking.
I continue to remain active in the Oxford University Blind Tasting Society. But unlike
With all of the teams and societies that Oxford has to offer, it is hard finding the time to do it all. Oxford has been a smashing place to spend the past five months, and I look forward to what the remainder of the year has in store.
