  1. Rizina Yadav, Accepted: Stanford, Yale, Princeton, and Oxford (Law)
    Hi, I'm Rizina! I recently graduated from Merewether High School in Newcastle. I love reading and writing, currently in the midst of Sarah Bakewell's The Existentialist Café and writing an article about the relationship between Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs and the populist renaissance, and going on spontaneous adventures with friends. My interest in philosophy and tendency to introduce philosophical questions in social situations has resulted in lots of exclamations of Not again, Rizina! from my friends. After university, I hope to work in some way to improve the accessibility and effectiveness of social and political systems of organisation.
