Cherry completed her LLB with First Class Honours, graduating first in her year, and will complete the PCLL this year. She is a senior editor of the Hong Kong Journal of Legal Studies, and represented her university in the 2012 Philip C Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. Following participation in a voluntary programme at the Thai / Myanmar border, Cherry leads a media project to help raise awareness for legal and political activism in the area. For light relief, she enjoys literature, music, photography, and drawing. Her passion for law is borne of a keen sense of justice, and she hopes to develop this in the future as a barrister in Hong Kong and China.
