  • Studentship: University of Cambridge, 2008-09

Thanks to the foundation’s generous support of my MBA studies at University of Cambridge, I was able to have a transformational experience that will last for a lifetime. I not only gained a huge amount of knowledge from lecturers and fellow classmates, but went on a unique journey discovering the world, culture, people and myself.

I started my career as a finance journalist at China’s official English-language newspaper, China Daily. I later moved to the marketing function at one of the top-ranked Asian business schools, CEIBS. My MBA experience not only prepared me for future leadership roles at the school, but also broadened my horizons by providing a more global perspective.

I still remember the initial interview with the foundation’s trustees, who continue to support my educational and career planning. In tribute to Marjorie, who passed away not long after I started my studies, I hope to assist the foundation as it kindly extends support to others like it once did for me.
