A Bedfordshire alumni has been selected as a finalist for the Spirit of Youth Alumni Award by the British Council team in China.
Miss Shan Chen was shortlisted for her work in developing a Contact Improvisation dance community in Chengdu. The dance activities targeted people from all ages and backgrounds, encouraging Chinese non-dancers to explore improvised movements as part of their daily life and connecting with society artistically.
Applications from the UK’s most outstanding alumni have been received from alumni in a record 127 countries, for the fourth year of a prestigious award celebrating the achievements of the UK’s international alumni around the world. For the first time, the Study UK Alumni Awards are open to all alumni living outside of the UK, finding and celebrating many more success stories of the UK’s alumni.
Award winners and finalists are leaders in their fields who have used their experience of studying at a UK university to make a positive contribution to their communities, professions and countries. The Alumni Awards celebrate and showcase the impact and value of a UK higher education and raises the profile and reputation of UK alumni, their former universities, and the whole of UK education.
“We are incredibly proud that Ms Chen has been shortlisted as a finalist and wish her every success for the Award event and all of her future endeavours”, Charmaine Brady, Alumni Relations Manager.
