Warden of Wadham College Ken Macdonald QC and DPhil student Daniel Zajarias-Fainsod shared their stories at the inaugural Wadham Inspires event

This was the first in a series of evenings hosted by Wadham's recently appointed Research Associates designed to bring together members of Wadham through the exchange of personal stories and narratives.

Ken Macdonald QC began the evening by telling the intimate audience of MCR and SCR members about an especially difficult case from his time as the Director of Public Prosecutions, noting the importance of public interest in deciding when to bring difficult cases involving assisted suicide to court. He finished by inviting discussion from the audience.

DPhil student and former MCR president Daniel Zajarias-Fainsod concluded the evening by giving an account of his involvement with the Red Cross and sharing his experiences launching the start-up company Lock8 while studying Biomedical Engineering at Oxford. Daniel stressed the importance of noticing connections between the different activities in our lives and of getting the most out of every moment. His Red Cross on Campus programme will be expanded to involve other institutions over the coming months.

Wadham Inspires is an ongoing series. The next event will feature Chaplain Wendy Wale and McS student Lindsay Lee. It will take place on June 2nd at 5.30pm in the Gillese Badun Seminar Room. Attendance is free, drinks will be provided and registration is now open.
