Courtesy of @cheveningfco I attended the @bbc Komla Domar Awards. It was great to see Solomon Serwanjja recieve the award. I’m all for African journalists telling the African story in a positive light. #chosenforchevening

My sons would say 'ghost tree'. Nature is getting ready for the cold winter months.
I don't want to detract the history of any country, but the history of Scotland is especially interesting. The city is full of remarkables stories and anecdotes, and if you are in Edinburgh, you cannot miss the castle, which I think, it's the type of castle you image when you're a kid and someone mention castles and dragons narratives.
Here are some interesting details (the ones I remember) locals mentioned to me:
-Edinburgh castle is built on an extinct volcano.
-This was the first city in the world to have its own fire services.
-There are an approximate 112 parks.
-The "Stone of Destiny" is kept in the castle (amazing story behind!)
-Edinburgh has more listed buildings than anywhere in the world.
International networking and leadership skills event in good company.

When Josan Sutherland received news that she had been named one of the 2019 Jamaican Chevening Scholars, her immediate reaction was filled with excitement and anticipation for the life-changing journey that she was about to begin. “When I got the call to pick up the official letter I was super excited. I got the e-mail with the #ChosenForChevening tag line at work and my co-workers were screaming with me. I went through the application process and I was successful and now about to pursue a Master of Science in Advanced Neuro Physiotherapy at University College London to further my passion for working with the neurological community — persons with stroke and spinal cord injury. This was a good avenue to further my passion and work with the disabled community,” Sutherland told the Jamaica Observer.
But in a cruel twist of fate, Sutherland, 27, received news the very next day that she had cancer — a fresh diagnosis that marked her third bout with the illness. Read more in today's Sunday Observer or follow the link in our IG story.
Group Photo of our MSc Criminology & Criminal Justice Class at University of Edinburgh 2019-20. Today was Last class of first semester. Semester ended so quickly. Like I just came on 6th of September 😐 and semester is over ( assignments to be submitted till first week of jan though). That is like a bit more than two months😀
I find it fascinating that we, as humans, can reflect on our personal experiences and while looking in the past - model our future. And this thought has nothing to do (well, almost nothing 😊) that I have to reflect on War and Games in International Relations and write a 3,000 words essay.
For me, reflecting is getting to know myself better.
"Get to know thyself," the Ancients bequeathed to us. Greatest minds sought answers in philosophy, poetry, music, esotericism, mysticism, astrology, physics, alchemy. They were looking for a path to enlightenment, they put self-knowledge at the forefront, but to this day this question is open and has not brought a person an iota closer to the answer to the question "who am I, why am I?"
A physicist expresses God with a formula; a musician expresses his spiritual state through the vibrations of a string; a poet expresses it is written and spoken words. But there is no answer. That is why I think that we need to reflect on what we feel and how we feel to look deep inside ourselves to grow. #iamchevening#cheveningukraine#chosenforchevening#UKinUkraine#england#norwich
"Dear Shanoy, the Global engagement department would love to feature your achievement to celebrate your success and help inspire other prospective students". So began a process of questions and answers and today's Global Scholars photoshoot. I couldn't decide between My Jamaican and Chevening scarves so snapped a quick pic with both. After all, we are all the sum of varied fractions that make our lives whole. #MyCheveningJourney#ShefUniLife#ChosenForChevening
A dream come true😊 One of the best experiences so far in this amazing journey. ⚽🇨🇺 Sueño hecho realidad! Una de las mejores experiencias hasta ahora de este increíble viaje. Orgullosos de apoyar al primer cubano en la premier league @hernandezonel_23
The royal and national anthem of the UK following the royal salute to HM the Queen, performed by Queen's Guards and the Guard's Band. "God save the Queen" (or "Dieu protége la reine" in French version bilingually used in Canada), known as "God save the King" ("Dieu protége le roi") for the male monarch, becomes also the royal anthem for 16 Commonwealth realms.
One for the history books!! After more than 60 years, Partizan played at Old Trafford.
Another one from the bucket list crossed off!
Amazing experience, good vibes throughout the city. Stadium looks awesome and you get a sense of history just by walking by it. Home fans were really friendly and you could get a sense that they are true football fans.
I am proud of my team and their effort, Man Utd fans were holding their breath on a couple of occasions when we attacked. We lost fair and square but we can hold our head high.
But I was disappointed with the treatment by the Man Utd staff and in some pubs around the city. For them, speaking Serbian was a threat of violence let alone wearing a shirt or a flag. When they are doing that they are negating everything great Serbian players like Nemanja Vidić or current player Nemanja Matić are or were doing for their club. If we go broader than that, Aleksandar Kolarov was one of the key players in Man City run for their first title in decades. They should show more respect for them and their legacy at Manchester clubs.
I do hope other Premier League teams have a more open and inclusive atmosphere as I saw on the telly before I came here.
Fung Scholar x Chevening Scholar in #Shanghai 🙃😂 @kevinlo_global_traveltographer no matter we are trying to change the macro NGO landscape or promote financial literacy among youth, one thing for sure, it’s not a random act of kindness but a way to love our city.
I am extremely blessed to be awarded the most prestigious scholarship in the world (@cheveningfco)! I now join the coveted league of Chevening scholars to study for an M.A in Global Media Management at @ucabusinessschool for Creative Industries in @UniCreativeArts !
I dedicate this honor to anyone who has ever believed in me and everyone who was involved in this cumbersome but highly rewarding process! Especially my mother -who discovered early, my love to create! My bosses! My family and friends who have literally taken every step of this journey with me thus far - and to all of Ghana!
The mission to create a sustainable ecosystem to discover, nurture and commercialize high level Ghanaian creativity has just begun!
Thank you @cheveningfco! @UKinGhana #ChosenForChevening#MyCheveningJourney #IAMChevening #DontStopBelieving

Although I am still super sick, I am happy to share that l will be moving to London in September to study my dream masters: an MPA in Science, Engineering and Public Policy at @UCL!!! 📚📒🎓
This is possibke thanks to an amazing scholarship funded by the British Government: @cheveningfco (Applications are open in case you are thinking to study next year ❤)
PS: Thanks to all the people who helped me in the process!!! I love you all 😙
Cannot keep calm since I won one of the most prestigious grants in the world — the Chevening scholarship. I will study the course of what have become my passion for the last 3 years — financial journalism at City, University of London. Already prepared a video about it but only in Russian yet. Check the link in bio 👆. English version is coming soon!
Наконец-то стало известно, на какие шиши я собираюсь учиться в Лондоне — на деньги британского правительства. Нежданно-негаданно я выиграла стипендию Chevening, которая покрывает расходы на обучение, проживание, визу и перёлет. Чтобы стать стипендиатом, нужно иметь высшее образование и 2 года опыта работы за плечами (можно просто насобирать 2800 часов).
Самое главное — доказать, что вы лидер, хорошо заводите и поддерживаете знакомства и связи, и собираетесь изменить ситуацию к лучшему в вашей стране. Да, по условиям стипендии я вернусь в Россию на 2 года, поэтому предложения выйти замуж за англичанина и остаться там неуместны. Меня и тут неплохо кормят 😻. А вот образования тут такого не дают, поэтому и уезжаю.
Про стипендию мало известно в России, поэтому я сделала видео о том, как выглядит идеальный кандидат и что делать, чтобы ему соответствовать (тизер: портфолио достижений можно насобирать за год при желании). Ссылка в профиле, идите, смотрите и мотивируйтесь!

I'VE BEEN CHOSEN FOR CHEVENING!
Depois de meses de estudo, preparação e seleções, a aventura do Chevening começa de verdade hoje!
Nos próximos 365 dias, estarei em Londres, apoiada pelo @cheveningfco, fazendo mestrado em Development Studies na @londonschoolofeconomics 🇬🇧
Essa conquista tem gosto de desafio, dos já passados e dos ainda por vir. E o que dá mais ímpeto do que um bom challenge? 🤓
Porém, antes de começar essa nova etapa, quero agradecer a todos que me apoiaram e ajudaram a chegar aqui. Minha família, meus amigos, meus mestres. Os de perto e os de longe, os do trabalho e os do happy hour (às vezes todos misturados rsrs), os das conversas e os dos abraços. Meu coração vai pro UK cheio de amor ❤
Além disso, deixo a dica da orientação super estratégica e focada da Letícia do @direitonoexterior, essencial para que eu entendesse todo o processo e as características do Chevening.
E um obrigada especial ao @ukinbrazil pela organização, apoio e cordialidade em todas as ocasiões.
Thank you @cheveningfco, @ukinbrazil and @lse_development for the opportunity and trust. The challenge of being a chevener is just beginning and I look forward to a year of dedication and discovery.
E agora? Shall we begin? 😍
