Claire (Ting) Zhao was awarded the Queen's Scholarship when she was studying in Chongquing University in Chongquing.
I think I am one of the luckiest students, my supervisor picked me up from the airport! Imagine you are an international student who has flown for over 20 hours and the first person you meet is your supervisor who carries your 45kg luggage to your dorm. I think that's the best experience ever. Claire (Ting) Zhao
