On Sunday, July 1, Cherie Kihato flew from Nairobi to London to New York City– an 18-hour journey that took her far away from her two older brothers and her mother. She began Oxbridge’s New York College Experience, where she will be away from home for the next month studying Journalism here in the Big Apple. She explained that she is most excited for the chance to see what New York has to offer in terms of landmarks and history. She’s happy to stay in the States for July, which she explained already feels very different from home. She’s minoring in Creative Writing and it’s her passion for writing that also led her to take Journalism as a major.
