From HKBU eNews:

Dr Jason Polley, Associate Professor of English Language and Literature at HKBU recommended Zabrina for the Scholarship. He is thrilled about Zabrina winning the scholarship and praises her first-rate performances in academic, extra-curricular, and volunteer activities. Zabrina also participated in a yearlong exchange to England, travelled to Antarctica, and earned top prizes in English poetry and short story contests at HKBU. With her already rich experiences garnered at such an early age, she will prove herself more than deserving of the life-enriching and life-inspiring CY Tung scholarship.
