Miss Tik Naomi Yin, a year 3 student of BSc (Hons) in OT programme, received the Swire University Scholarship 2020/21. The scholarship rewards outstanding students for their excellent academic achievements as well as commitment to community services. Naomi is a talented student with distinguished academic performance, who has participated actively in volunteer services, such as the World Occupational Therapy Day 2018 to promote occupational therapy to the general public. She has the following to share:
"2020 was a tough year. Things were harsh no matter in personal, social and global aspects. I was struggling with the adaptation to the new teaching mode and lifestyle, while my parent was facing potential unemployment. Studies were stressful as I needed to work hard to maintain good grades. When I heard about this scholarship, I decided to give it a try. I did not expect much since I thought an additional source of stress was not good. As a result, the news that I was honoured with this award came as a happy surprise. It is also a great encouragement to me and my family.
Many thanks to my family and friends who had supported me. My deep appreciation too to Professor Tsang and the teachers who had nominated me. I am also very grateful for all my teachers who have taught me with passion for their professions. Finally, I would like to thank God for His grace and the opportunity He gave me.”
