Rhodes Scholar From Trinidad and Tobago Is Destined for Greatness

| December 29, 2016

                Kiron Neale from Trinidad and Tobago

Four years ago Kiron Neale from Trinidad and Tobago was awarded the Commonwealth Caribbean Rhodes Scholarship.

His journey is truly inspiring so I wanted to trace that journey over over the past 4 years.

Here are a couple of videos that highlights Neale’s journey over the years.

About Kiron Neale
Kiron is a graduate of the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus in Trinidad and Tobago and was able to pursue majors in both Geography and Environmental and Natural Resource Management (2009 – 2012).

He later worked with the Environmental Policy and Planning Division of the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources in Trinidad (2012 – 2013) on several initiatives that revolved around policies for wildlife, integrated coastal zone management, climate change and ozone depletion, as well as recycling and waste management.

These experiences naturally peaked his interest in the environment and he followed on with ECI’s MSc in Environmental Change and Management (2013 – 2014) here at Oxford through his election as the Commonwealth Caribbean’s Rhodes Scholar for 2013. The strong research context of the department provided an exciting environment to learn, think and question; creating an academic climate well placed for pursuing longer-term research through doctoral studies.
