I recently started work at a large architecture firm in New York, only to discover that my CAD manager had worked in Trinity Hall kitchens 30 years ago, and had met his wife there. The community of Trinity Hall has really wrapped around the globe for me, and I'm enormously grateful for the friends and academics and staff that I met there.
I arrived at Trinity Hall as an engineering student, but within two weeks was re-interviewed and made the shift to Architecture. The support and kindness of the faculty in both departments made the transition seamless and stimulating. My Director of Studies was hugely supportive of my career after College, including the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation Scholarship that allowed me to spend two years living and working in Tokyo, and Princeton University Graduate School of Architecture. She even visited me in both Japan and America.

Despite the distance, the people I lived with in Clems and BBC will always be my closest friends, and we've managed to visit each other all over the world. There was nothing more delightful than visiting the College six years later to see the same familiar porters in the P'lodge and Joseph in the kitchen, who all welcomed me back as if I'd only been gone a week.
