Sisi Lin wins the 2017 Big Ben Award
The Big Ben Award, formally established in 2008, represents the people who contribute to the relationship between China and other nations. It helps people to understand Chinese business, culture and development. Its aim is to establish and promote models of high achievers within China and the world.
In 2015, Sisi established Sishu Chinese School. After she obtained her Masters degree in Psychoanalytic Child Development Study, the school was selected as one of the sponsored student enterprises by University College London. Sishu aims to deliver high quality Chinese language teaching to children as well as to promote Chinese culture in a creative way. Sishu has become one of the qualified Hanban Chinese test centres in 2016. Sishu has also organized many cultural events at different venues, such as the British Museum, Museum of London, Scoop open theatre, and London Chinatown Chinese Association.
Sisi is extremely honoured to receive the 2017 UK Ten Outstanding Chinese Young Persons in Education and Culture award and is very grateful for the recognition she has received for her work. She would like to thank all her teachers from the Anna Freud Centre for helping her understand child development from a psychoanalytic view, and as well as her family and friends for motivating her personally reach a stage where she can proudly hold up this award as a mark of her achievement. She also promises that we'll see her here for more such awards.
