Lingnanians receive Outstanding Tertiary Students and GBA scholarships for extraordinary performance
Justline Chan Ngar-kiu (Contemporary English Studies, year 3) and Anson Yu On-sang (Translation, year 3) were named Outstanding Tertiary Students in recognition of their excellent achievements in extra-curricular activities.
Ten university candidates were on the Junior Chamber International City, Hong Kong (JCI City) Outstanding Tertiary Students Selection 2021 shortlist of 100, recommended by their respective higher education institutions, and were honoured this year. The award seeks to nurture future leaders in domains from leadership to teamwork and public speaking, and to present a positive image of young people.
“I am so delighted to have won this award which recognises my contributions and personal attributes,” Justline said. “It is a fierce competition between the most talented and outstanding local tertiary education students. I am honoured to be a winner after such rigorous assessments. To me, it is not only an award, but another precious opportunity for self-improvement.”

Justline’s term GPA of 3.86 in the last academic year shows that she has learned to strike a good balance between academic studies and extracurricular activities. “Wishing to improve myself while remaining modest and open-minded are the two main things that have allowed me to be named an outstanding student. The education that I have received at LU has shaped my character, particularly because my teachers are always willing to support me not only in academic domains, but also in interpersonal skills and how to think,” she added.
Anson thanked LU for all its support. “Lingnan’s motto ‘Education for Service’ has inspired me to be a changemaker and to give a helping hand to people in need. The award is just the beginning of my life-long journey, and I will strive for improvements as I gain both experience and knowledge,” she said. “I think my proactive yet respectful attitude allowed me to win this award. I will try to stand out by being agile and continuing to learn, acquiring wisdom and broadening my perspective.

“I believe that you never change your own life until you step out of your comfort zone, and that change begins at the end of your comfort zone,” said Anson, who, with undergraduate Eddie Chan Kong-man (Global Liberal Arts, year 2), has also received a HSBC Greater Bay Area (Hong Kong) Scholarship.
Both are aspired to develop a career in the Greater Bay Area. Anson, who was an intern in Guangzhou Nansha, is interested in AI technology development and plans to study a postgraduate programme and start a career in the bay area after graduating. Whereas Eddie wishes to consolidate the position of his award-winning online platform startup as a professional human resource service provider for college students in Asia.
