Warwick Student Wins Place on Chinese Government Programme for Outstanding Youth
University of Warwick student Valerie Yating He, has won a place on a highly selective Chinese Government Programme for Outstanding Youth. The Programme, “The China Synergy Programme for Outstanding Youth” offers students of ethnic Chinese origin the chance to partake in a month long all expenses paid study visit to China to give them a range of current Chinese cultural experiences in China and brief them about the latest current socio-economical, technological and cultural developments in China.
Places on the programme are highly sought after owing to the stringent selection criteria. Valerie Yating He, is an ethnic Chinese Scottish student from Lenzie in Glasgow. She is studying for an Accounting and Finance degree at the University of Warwick’s Warwick Business School (WBS).
Applicants for this prestigious Chinese Government programme had to demonstrate outstanding scholastic and personal achievements. Valerie was easily able to do so. She is about to finish her three year Accounting and Finance degree at the University of Warwick’s Warwick Business School despite being only 19 - two years younger than her fellow students.
When not studying her life has been filled with a vast range of other activities and achievements including: getting down to the final few competing for a major movie role of the character ‘Cho Chang’ in the Harry Potter movies (a possible love interest for Harry Potter), work experience in Goldman Sachs and the Bank of China, taking part in a fashion shoot for the Sing Tao newspaper, and she is now looking to organize a period of time as an English language teacher in China during this summer. Her visit to China starts on June 20th.
The Chinese Government are paying for all her accommodation and travel costs within China and the University of Warwick are paying for her flights to China and registration fee. When she has completed her visit, and her possible subsequent visit to China as an English language teacher, she will be taking up a job at KBC Financial products in London.
