CCSRE Life Stories: Marion Wells

Learn more about the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity  at Middlebury College

“Life Stories of Middlebury College” is a multi-phase initiative intended to gather people’s experiences while at the college, particularly reflections that highlight issues of diversity. In her interview, Marion Wells speaks about the assumptions people make because of her British accent, the difficulties of preparing to apply to Oxford as a teenager, the diversity and geographic distances experienced within her own family, her practice of Zen Buddhism and how this personal history helps her to keep her mind open to others.
