Trinity College Telethon
3rd Ė 18th September 2011
I'm Sarah Browning, and have just finished reading Theology at Trinity. Over the past three years I have come to love all that both Oxford and Trinity have to offer, coxing for TCBC, captaining Trinity's ladies' tennis and editing The Broadsheet. I am currently attempting to figure out how I plan to make my mark in the professional world following graduation. I have a passion for olives, good friends and travel, hoping to sometime return to my native South Africa.
Hi, I'm Andrew, a Trinitarian originally from Northern Ireland and a recent graduate in Chemistry. I've enjoyed it so much I am now staying to continue studying for a DPhil in Inorganic Chemistry! In my second year I was JCR President, a position that gives you a great sense of everything going on within the student body and also the challenges facing college. Having taken a year fundraising for UWC Adriatic, I am back as a Telethon veteran having been involved in the 2008 and 2009 campaigns and looking forwards to speaking to you.
Hiya! Iím Harriet Czernobay, about to go into my 3rd and final year at Trinity studying Philosophy and Theology. My time so far at Trinity has been great, particular highlights include competing in Ballroom and Latin dancing for the Oxford University Dancesport Team, rowing for Trinityís 2nd Eight and this summer being part of the Trinity social rounders team. I have really enjoyed my time here and canít believe itís gone so quickly, so will definitely be making the most of my last year!
My name is Jonathan and I've just finished the first year of a DPhil looking at William Blake and his connection to contemporary radical Christian movements. Outside of my academic work I play for a local softball team and help out with College and University widening participation initiatives. I really enjoy being part of the graduate community here at Trinity.
†Hi, I'm Andrew, a 3rd year medical student from Cheshire. Outside of my studies I enjoy rowing; last year I was TCBC men's captain, and I am now beginning my term as President. When I'm not reading, rowing, training, coaching, drinking (tea usually) with friends or sleeping, I sing Tenor in the chapel choir. My first two years at Trinity have given me some of the best experiences of my life, and I'm sure there are many more to come.
I'm a 4th year materials scientist about to start my research year on steels for nuclear reactors. I enjoy travelling and in my spare time I am treasurer of the college choir, cox for the boat club and discuss international affairs in the pub.
Hello, I'm Anna Maguire. I'm about to go into my third year reading History and can't believe my Trinity experience is almost over! For the past year, I've been President of Trinity Players and I do a lot of theatre, whether acting, directing or producing and I hope to go into a career in the theatre world.
My name is Philip, a third year Ancient and Modern Historian. I love relaxing music, great scenery and long tours abroad, my passions are travelling and football of all kinds! I have been involved in such extra-curricular activities as chess, debating, rugby, and Gaelic football, and I greatly appreciate the opportunities Oxford has given me to pursue all my passions, not just work!
I'm Tom Moore and I've been at Trinity for 4 years now studying Medicine. Whilst many of my friends are now leaving to join the illustrious ranks of the Trinity alumni, I'm only half way through my course so it's a good thing I like it here! Outside of academia, I'm enjoy playing a variety of sports and have taken up rowing, rugby and boxing (with varying degrees of success. Aside from sport, my biggest passions are music and travel, and last summer I spent 9 weeks in South East Asia (including a 3 week stint teaching in a rural hill tribe school in northern Thailand) with the generous help of a travel bursary from Trinity.
My name is Nathan Mulcock and Iím going into my third year studying Theology, Trinity has offered many opportunities, I s ing and fundraise for the Chapel Choir, and am a member of the Orchestra and a Peer Supporter. The laid-back nature of the college has also allowed me to participate in various sports, despite admittedly not showing much aptitude for any of them! This coming year Iím hoping also to get more involved in some of the Charity work that is on offer through the Oxford Hub.
My name is Charlotte Mulliner, I'm a second year studying Theology. I've very much enjoyed throwing myself into university life over the past two years, getting involved with drama and the university mixed lacrosse team. In Trinity, I've had a brilliant time being co-president of the Trinity Players, putting on two sell out shows, 'Our Country's Good' and 'Dangerous Liaisons'. Getting involved with college sport has also been great fun, catching the rowing fever, and despite little prowess in the field,† captaining the athletics team, who are 2010's cuppers champions, possibly achieved more through sheer Trinity enthusiasm than overwhelming talent!!
Hi, Iím Georgina Royle; I am studying for a Masters in Materials, after having finished my Finals in June. Over the past three years here I have tried various things including Cheerleading for the University as well as continuing to be involved in cricket, both at University level and in College. Trinity has given me the opportunity to travel to both China and the Netherlands. I have immensely enjoyed my first three years at Trinity and know I will continue to do so in the future.
Hello! I am Matt Wills, and I recently finished my first year studying History at Trinity. I am a keen China enthusiast, and I hope to be able to complete a degree in Chinese Studies after graduating in 2012. Outside of work, I spend my time on the technical side of some of Oxford's many student productions- I worked on no less than 9 shows in my first year!
