  • I study French and Italian at St Anne’s College, Oxford. I began learning Italian ab initio when I started in 2012, and as result of being so far behind with Italian in comparison, I really worked hard to improve my Italian by studying at language courses in Florence and spending a summer working as an au-pair. As a consequence, my French then fell behind, and I really wasn’t comfortable with grammar or speaking. I have thus chosen to spend the majority of my year Abroad in France, and just the two summers either side in Italy. I had already had a fair bit of experience working at primary schools in England as a volunteer and so decided that I wanted to use my year abroad as a chance to gain a different type of work experience.

She says, "I want to shed light on the experiences I have had as a young black woman abroad. I want to be able to give advice to other Black people and ethnic minorities on what to expect upon starting their year abroad as I, as well as several of my fellow Black Trent students, have encountered racism on several occasions and feel it is a topic that needs to be brought to attention." Here is her advice.
