New Young Univ Gallery portraits

3 women and a man standing in front of a treeFour new portraits now form part of our ongoing Young Univ Gallery Project, which was begun in 2016 by our then Master, Sir Ivor Crewe.

In February of this year Hetal Jani (2013, BA PPE), Dr Helena Mills (2008, BA, MSt and DPhil History), Adam CJ Park (2005, MChem Chemistry) and Anne Ross (2007, BA PPE) were hosted by Master of Univ, Valerie Amos, in the Master’s Lodgings and their portraits taken, in various locations throughout College, by photographer David Fisher.

These four portraits now hang in Hall alongside almost 60 others, to help more fully illustrate the diversity of Univ’s student body and the exciting and varied careers they go on to pursue

Hetal Jani (2013, BA PPE) is a Policy Advisor at the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport where she works on government policy related to charities and social enterprises. She is also a director of a small social enterprise, Life After Hummus which does amazing work in London to reduce health inequalities, food wastage and social isolation. She was previously at the EIRIS Foundation, where she did advocacy work to encourage large charities and foundations to invest their money ethically. Before Univ, she attended Claremont High School secondary school and sixth form in Brent, London.

Dr Helena Mills (2008, BA, MSt and DPhil History) is the Head of Policy for the Research Excellence Framework (the national exercise assessing research quality in universities) at UK Research and Innovation. Helena received an Old Members’ Trust Bursary, a Senior Scholarship and the Burns Scholarship at Univ. Her DPhil was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. She was also a Student Ambassador. Before Univ, Helena attended Bicester Community College.

Adam CJ Park (2005, MChem Chemistry) is a Partner at Boston Consulting Group (BCG), where he helps companies transform by adapting digital technologies and new ways-of-working at scale. After graduating, Adam went on to work as a consultant in the energy industry (2010-2011) where he worked on improving sensitive maintenance processes at nuclear power plants; he then went on to be a Leveraged Capital Markets analyst at UBS Investment Bank (2011-2013), before joining Boston Consulting Group. At Univ he was a member of the Boat Club and rowed with the First Eight. Prior to Univ, he attended Bedford School in the UK.

Anne Ross (2007, BA PPE) is an Executive Director in the EMEA Equity Syndicate team at J.P. Morgan. She started her career in the UK and Sub Saharan Africa Equity Capital Markets team after graduating. Before Univ, she attended Lady Margaret School in London.

In addition to the hanging of these new portraits in Hall, a new Young Univ Gallery webpage has been created to showcase every portrait from the project, along with extensive interviews from all of the subjects, behind the scenes pictures and “making of” video.

Our thanks to all those whose generosity of time, spirit and energy has made this important project possible.
