Yao Yao's offer: Peking University 

The confidence to step out of her comfort zone was one of the many "gifts" that SISB gave to Yao Yao since she joined in 2013. Coming from a Chinese-speaking family, the school's curriculum enabled her to master English, Chinese and Thai. Besides becoming a linguist, Yao Yao has also experienced numerous activities, such as the Student Council and sports clubs, and helped shaped her aspiration to become a Computer and information research scientist.
