Goodenough College Alumni - Did You Know?
Did you know that one of our alumni is on her way to represent us in China?
Isabella is a 2014/15 alumnus of London House, where she lived whilst completing an MA in Intellectual and Cultural History at the Warburg Institute, University of London. During her stay at Goodenough, she enjoyed the College’s access to Chatham House and RCDS events, gave a Port Talk on the Radical Reformation, and was lucky enough to cat-sit one of the College cats, Tigerlily, for a weekend.
Since leaving Goodenough College, she has joined Global Affairs Canada, where she has worked on international security, international business development, and trade policy and negotiations.
Isabella will be leaving for Asia this summer on her first diplomatic posting. Isabella has been a member of the LGAC Board of Directors since 2017. She created the current LGAC website and edited the newsletter from 2017 to 2019. We are thankful for her help!
From Our Scholars
On Global Giving Day on November 18, 2019, the LGAC hosted a Zoom meeting before the Andrew Coyne Port Talk. We had three Canadians in residence at the College join us.
Marnie Howlett - Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
Marnie has resided at Goodenough College since September 2017 when starting her Ph.D. in International Relations at the LSE. She is currently in the final year of her program and hopes to submit within the next 12 months. She held an LGAC Scholarship in the 2018-2019 academic year and is immensely thankful for the opportunity that provided her.
Samantha Shroeder - Vancouver, BC
Vancouver, B.C. Samantha moved to Goodenough College in September 2019. She is taking the MSc in Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, which has been quite timely considering the ongoing pandemic and brave new world we live in. Samantha is on an LGAC scholarship this year (2020-2021). She, too, is very thankful for the support of the LGAC; “It has allowed my partner (Jared) and me to have the fullest London experience we can despite lockdown giving us a very different image of what London normally looks like.”
