"This summer I worked in a research group writing code to identify tumours on MRI images from cancer patients, as part of a project to find new techniques for diagnosis and treatment. This was a fantastic experience and has made me want to discover even more about the multiple potential applications of engineering in the healthcare sector."

"Growing up, Oxford was never touted as an option or achievable. Even worse, it was always seen as a place full of posh, white, 'nerds' from private schools. As a State-School Burmese Rohingya from Tower Hamlets, I am the opposite and yet I got in. I want to show to a lot of these students that people from their background can not just make it, but also thrive. I want to see Oxford become a more diverse place, and the only way for that to happen is if people see people like themselves get in."
