I was worried about how I was going to make friends. People already knew me and that made being there as a student and not as a person already known in the media was a challenge. But when I arrived, everyone welcomed me as friends and I was very happy to be a part of Oxford. I’m just an Oxford student and I think that’s how they treat me.
