“Be open to what might come next rather than having a predetermined idea of where you are going.“ The coolest thing about Alexander Betts job as an Academic Refugee Activist at Oxford University is the feeling that he can make a difference. He is teaching, researching, managing the research of others, supervising students and networking. His main advice to his 14-year-old self? “I think I would say, it all makes sense backwards. Follow the things, that you are passionate about as you go along.“
