Fulfilled her lifelong dream of studying at Oxford, in Queens' College.
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
Like many this has been the one saying that has really motivated and encouraged me to fulfil my dreams. I was only 10 years old when I first decided on what I wanted to be and what I wanted to do in life. I basically had two major goals; one that I wanted to study at Oxford and two that I wanted to be a bestselling author.
Oxford Royale Academy has helped me to achieve my dreams. Stepping into Oxford was one of the most exhilarating and happiest moments of my life. Adding to that the welcome I received by the ORA staff was friendlier than I imagined.
I have had a really good experience. We’ve gone to various Oxford tours, had movie nights, punting in the river and some ‘wonderland’ parties. Not only has this experience made me come across different people and their different cultures but has helped me a great deal in my academics. This program has made me confident in the way I address my point of view to others and has provided a platform for my future career. The teachers here have been very supportive and are enriched with the knowledge of the subjects they are teaching. Not only the teachers but all the other students I’ve come across have been a pleasure to meet. There are many experiences I have had with ORA that I cherish dearly. I can still remember every single talent show and all the wide range of talented people I have encountered. Moreover, it is the teachers, the counsellors and everyone, who sacrifices their summer to come and educate us, is truly what makes ORA such a unique and vital experience. All the teachers I have had during each course have been so supportive and passionate. I know that I can rely on them and their notes to help me in the future. The counsellors, the ones who are there for you ever second, are honestly amazing. One of the girls during my last time in ORA said “It’s like having a temporary big sister or brother, who’ll guide you and also be there for you”.
Applying here and getting in with a 100% scholarship was one of my greatest achievements. It is an experience that is going to last for my entire life. An experience that has given me a flavour of how university life feels like and so I am ready for the adventures that await me in my future. A huge thanks to the ORA team who made this all happen.
