The ANU, in a busy news day, has announced that arts/law honours student has won a prized Rhodes Scholarship and is therefore off to Oxford.
For me, the Rhodes Scholarship means the opportunity to study at Oxford, and becoming a member of an international community of public spirited scholars,” he said.
“Beyond the exciting opportunity of studying at Oxford, I hope that the Rhodes Scholarship might assist me in furthering the community work I have done with Indigenous communities in the Gulf of Carpentaria.
“At Oxford I aim to get an international perspective on issues I have studied within the context of Indigenous affairs in Australia.
“My hope is to return and usefully apply this international perspective in Australia,” he said.
