An Interview With Debbie Lee

Debbie achieved A* in Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics at A-Level, and is now hoping to go on to study Mechanical Engineering at university.

  • Debbie Lee 2016 Graduate
  • Debbie Lee

What have you done for the past 3 months since the end of exams?

This summer was very hectic. Of course I was having fun with friends and family, but I was also finishing off applications for several Korean universities. I got my driver’s license, had an interview with professors from Yonsei University, and volunteered as a translator and medical staff in Vision Care Eye Camp, where we offered free check-up and surgery for those who were suffering from cataract in Guizhou Province.

What are your plans from here?

Though I was offered to study at several universities in Hong Kong and the UK, I’m hoping to study in Korea, my home country. First term starts in March so until then, I’m going to have more fun self-studying Korean history and Maths to get myself ready for university.

What kind of challenge are you seeking over the next few years?

The biggest challenge for me would be cultural conflict in relationships and work environments. I’ve lived in China for twelve years, so I am far removed from the traditional Korean culture; but I can’t wait to get to know more about it. Academic performance would be another challenge because learning will be conducted in Korean.

Five years from now, where do you see yourself?

I see myself as an intern at a research lab in KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology), working with a group of engineers from different disciplines to build the most useful robot in dangerous environments, which would win the DARPA Robotics Challenge.
