Kim Chew2013-2014 Co-Deputy Director
I am currently a freshman at Duke University. I was born and raised in Singapore until my family moved to Shanghai, China in 2007. In 2013, I graduated Valedictorian from the British International School in Shanghai, China. During my senior year, I served as the President of my student body. I am extremely interested in research in the genomics field. Iím currently in the Sullivan Lab in the Institute of Genome Sciences and Policy (IGSP), and I intend to start my independent study research next semester on the stability of chromosome 17. I plan to become a Biology major, with a concentration in Genomics and Genetics.
During my high school career, I had many opportunities to give back to the community, and they have inspired me to continue participating in community service at Duke. I especially love working with children, and recently this past year, I went to the Starfish Foundation school in Cambodia to teach English and Math to students whose families cannot provide them with a good education.
In my free time, I enjoy dancing, mostly in ballet and modern, and I am in the Duke Dance Program.
