"I’d like to thank everybody who supported the scholarship, and to those who continue to support Hettie Elgood Scholars. Without this opportunity I would never have been able to continue with my studies. I believe working-class people really have a wealth of experience and insight to offer to the field of Art History, and the arts world more generally – not just as artists themselves, but as scholars. I’m so grateful that I’m here today and am excited to use this opportunity to encourage more people like me to engage with the world of Asian art."
