Rodrigo Navarro







Hi, I’m Rodrigo Navarro, 2016 MFE Candidate. One year ago I was an IT Service Deliver Lead looking for a new challenge and a career in Management Consultancy. At the moment I am balancing my studies and job search with being the IT/Information Centre Representative of the MFE class, Sports representative for Oriel College MCR and a novice member of Oriel College Rowing Team… I am really trying to get the most out of my year at Oxford.

The Oxford Union

I won’t lie to you, this whole experience has been surreal, ever since receiving my acceptance letter I’ve had to pinch my arm at least once per week to make sure I am not dreaming; however belonging to a society whose members include previous British PMs and American Presidents is on a whole different level.

Today I woke up at 5:50 am for a rowing session, with Christ Church Regatta taking place next week, the training plans have really increased the intensity in the last couple of days. After the outing was over, I realized that exactly two months ago I arrived to Oxford. In some ways I feel that […]
