I am ever indebted and grateful for awarding me the Betty and Donald Keating scholarship for Trinity Term 2012 at St Catherine’s College, Oxford University. I am honored to share few words of gratitude for the time I had at what I like to call the global nucleus for human learning and education.

 

The first impression on arrival at St. Catherine’s College was the lush green lawns spread all around.  It was such a soothing feeling for the one who has had her first flight jetlag.  I was fortunate to have the chance to take Economics and Management as my Primary Subject at Said Business School under guidance of Mr Kwangwon Ahn and to take Creative writing as my Secondary course with Dr John Ballam.  

 

Studying economics was a very practical experience for me. During every single assignment I had found it was more based on Economics management concept and statistics which are the basic steps required to understand  the financial market. Dr Ballam my Creative Writing tutor,  gave me ample of chances to enhance my skills and interest for this subject by giving me various assignments. For the first time in my life I learned to write the Japanese style of short poem it's called "Haiku".

 

Currently I am working with the Merrill Lynch a subsidiary of Bank of America Corporation as an Analyst. But since this is contract based job and I’m still looking forward for a good opportunity for my career.
