Flannery Burke, a UWC-USA graduate and currently a Roving Fulbright Scholar in Norway, has been visiting the College. Flannery was invited to address the community at the start of the ‘Happiness’ Global Concerns Day – talking about what makes her happy. As her subject she chose Light; specifically the clear, bright light of Los Angeles where she lived for some years. Her talk was poetic in her descriptions, and inspiring as she talked of the power of human diversity. It was a great way to start the day! Later, she delivered a World Today presentation giving a personal view of aspects of US history, politics and culture.

We have been very pleased that she was able to visit us.
