Meet the Fellows

The Oxford Policy Fellowship presented a unique and enriching work experience as an embedded legal advisor to the government of Namibia where I learnt tremendously from my colleagues at the Ministry as well offered my expertise - a two-way learning process that exceeded my expectations. It affirmed my interest in working with the public sector to spur sustainable development, a career path I continue to chart post-OPF
