Nelson Mandela, the former President of South Africa eminent for being an anti-apartheid revolutionist, once said, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” Recipient of this year’s The Most Distinguished Student of the University Award Twinkie Wong Tsing-sum (Psychology Year 4) proved the quote with her four years of diligent work. What has Twinkie done to earn her such a prestigious honour before graduation?
