- Scholarship in 2013 at the University of Cambridge
Christy obtained her Bachelor degree in Biochemistry from The University of Hong Kong (HKU) in 2013. During her times in HKU, she received several prestigious awards, including the "Patrick Chow Lum Wong Memorial Prize for Biochemistry", "HSBC Hong Kong Scholarship", "HKU-Pembroke-Kings Scholarship", "The Albert Young Foundation Limited Scholarship" and "Sir Edward Youde Memorial Scholarship for Undergraduate Studies".
As an undergraduate in HKU, ChristyWAS also provided with vast laboratory experience. She always believes in learning through personal involvement and experimentation, so the process of being in the lab as a student was immensely valuable. These research experiences have taught her patience and shown her the thought processes needed in working through a project. With the passion to appreciate Science to a greater extent, she decided to pursue a PhD in the University of Cambridge. Her study in Cambridge is supported by both “Croucher Cambridge International Scholarship” and the “Cambridge International Scholarship”.
