Student, Columbia University
Hi! My name is Bryley (she/her), and I am a first-year student at Columbia University from New York City. I plan on majoring in History, and I am deeply interested in memory, trauma, religion, and the preservation and adaptation of culture. As a Laidlaw Scholar, I will be researching cultural revival in post-genocide Cambodia with an eye towards education and Buddhist tradition.
As Lord Laidlaw, our Chairman, and Susanna Kempe, our CEO, met with scholars and alumni from around the world, many requested a way to meet ambitious peers, participate in leadership-in-action initiatives and collaborate on research projects for a better present. We welcome you to the Laidlaw Scholars Network, a social utility tool that allows you to do just this! Be the new generation of passionate, adaptive, ethical leaders.
