Cyan is a sophomore studying Public Health at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Prior to matriculation at CUHK, she had been involved in a maternal pain study which inspires her to dedicate herself to population-based medicine. Beyond the classroom, she currently serves as a Junior Research Assistant at the Faculty of Medicine assisting in both IVF and latent tuberculosis infection research projects and contributes to the establishment of the first IVF cryobanking database in Hong Kong. Cyan lives by the philosophy that one needs to be equipped with civic virtue to make this world a better place. To that effect, she has not only devoted herself to medical research, but is also determined to serve the underprivileged in society. Throughout the years, she has participated in different social services. Beginning with the volunteering experience for a local food bank, to organizing and participating in medical outreach of The Hong Kong Medical Association for singletons or hidden elders with potential health and living problems, these experiences encourage her to move from a passive participant to a proactive contributor in volunteering. Cyan also initiated several overseas service trips to China and Southeast Asia, during which she helped raise awareness on disease prevention and promote health to HIV-positive orphans and those with inborn intellectual disability. Having witnessed suffering due to poverty and diseases, she is motivated to go further by coalescing her professional knowledge and compassion. With the help of the Foundation, Cyan eagerly anticipates making an impact in society and serving the best to our community.
