CALF welcomes new scholar
After a pause in the scholarship as a result of Covid-19, we are so delighted to announce that this years' Crispin Aubrey Scholar will be awarded to Dawn Limbu. We are really excited to have Dawn onboard. Dawn demonstrated great abilities, passion and ambition and we are really looking forward to supporting her career progression. In accepting the award, Dawn shared: "I can't begin to describe how overjoyed I am to have won the Crispin Aubrey 2021 scholarship. I migrated to the UK with my family from South Africa with hopes for a better quality of life and a good education. Throughout my time in the UK, my family and I have faced multiple hurdles. I feel so honoured that a person like me, who was born in an underprivileged part of the world, has managed to win an award like this. In the past year, I have been working tirelessly both inside and outside of university and I am pleased to see my hard work starting to pay off. I look forward to using this prize money and mentoring support to investigate environmental issues in ethnic communities. Telling peoples stories has always been a passion of mine and I plan on dedicating my career to writing about social justice issues. I'd like to thank all of the journalism teaching staff for always supporting and encouraging me."
