    From a young age, I always loved to read, appreciating literature’s ability to transport us back and forward in time, across oceans and plains, and into the shoes of others to see the world from diverse perspectives. It seemed natural to pursue this interest by studying a degree in English Language and Literature at The University of Oxford (St Hilda’s College). Upon graduating, I wanted to share my passion and expertise with students and decided to pursue a career in education.
