The 14-year-old, a participant of the BRATs Young Journalist Programme, recently had her article “A better person because of wushu” published in StarEdu. BRATs, which is run by The Star’s Newspaper-in-Education (Star-NiE) team, provides a writing platform for participants aged 14 to 22 to enhance their English proficiency while honing and showcasing their writing talents. Throughout the year-long programme, participants receive guidance and training to create content in various formats, as well as to cultivate their journalistic interests and instincts. In the process, they are also taught skills like critical thinking and communication to foster their character development.
