The fourth student (if you’ve missed them, check our earlier posts!) willing to share her #halfwayhall
thoughts with us is Sahara (Second Year, Geography):
“Life at Cambridge has been filled with creativity, community, and curiosity. Being a King’s student has allowed me to flourish, not only academically, but creatively. I have been part of @thekingselab,
an entrepreneurship programme that has inspired me to take my craft to the next level; re-guiding me to work on Saharmony, my sustainable, handcrafted jewellery business.
I was awarded a University Worts Travelling Scholars grant and a King’s summer travel grant which gifted me life-changing experiences. I spent three months in Mexico, volunteering with the local community and appreciating the cultural diversity, natural beauty and the warmth of the people. As a Geographer, I have always been curious about the world, and I am more than grateful for the opportunity to be able to explore it with the support of my University. As a result, I have been inspired to take a Spanish course at the University Language Centre. I have always desired to learn a second language, and I believe Cambridge is the perfect environment for me to begin my journey.
I have recently joined the Athletics team and, although I am recovering from a previous injury, the @cambridgeuniathleticsclub
has been just as kind, warm-hearted, and welcoming as the rest of the University. I hope to represent @cambridgeuniversity
in Varsity during the summer.
I look forward to my future at King’s: it is a productive environment in which I can maximise my abilities, and I am grateful to be a part of the community and to have the opportunity to share my amazing experiences.”
