The 2021 Sachs Scholars have been announced: Aisha Tahir ’21, Jimin Kang ’21,
and Hannah Duffus from Worcester College, Oxford. As usual, the Scholars have jaw-dropping accomplishments
already and even bigger plans for the future.
From the announcement email: “Aisha plans to take her mighty pen and journalistic ambitions to South Asia, where she will report on multi-generational feminism before heading off for formal study at SOAS in London. . . . She is, among many other things, one of the very few Muslim students in the world ever to have interned for the Jewish Daily Forward. . . .
Jimin . . . promises to combine an extraordinary talent for journalism with a passion for the environment. As our Worcester Scholar, she proposes to pursue master’s degrees in both comparative literature and environmental management. An academic superstar with a clutch of prizes to her name, Jimin has been a campus leader through both her service work and her journalism. She also happens to be both a championship debater and a championship belly dancer. . . .
Hannah Duffus, a graduate of Monash University in Australia and currently a Provost’s Scholar at Worcester, will explore wildfire literatures of the American West as a student of the environmental humanities at the Princeton Graduate School. . . .She knows more about supervising a blueberry farm than the rest of us put together.”
