Life encompasses an extended intellectual journey.  For me and many others, Cambridge is where that journey makes a brand new beginning.  Its intense academic setting, great diversity, and a healthy dose of peer pressure have all helped nurture us into truly independent minds.  Going to Cambridge to do my BA was no doubt a life changing event, made possible only with a full scholarship award.  After working for four years post-graduation, I felt the urge again to return to Cambridge to do my PhD.  Gratefully, this second stretch of Cambridge immersion enriched my appreciation of life and I left with a humble and loving heart.  Through multiple career changes and other twists in life, my journey as a modest intellectual continues.
