Asia Health Science and Research Center,
Sennett is a calm, cheerful and caring person who aspires to work in the field of medicine to further her interest in biology and natural science. She is a youth advocate of SDG 3: Good Health and Well-Being, SDG 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure and SDG 10: Reduce Inequalities.
For Sennett, one of her biggest life lessons is to cherish every moment because nothing lasts forever. When she was 10, her parents told her that life is too short and that everyone around you will come and go because people change overtime. Prior to her current school, she spent nine years at another school and when she left, rather than appreciating what she has had, she focused on what she could have had. Looking back after a year, she reflected and realized she did in fact have a strong support structure. Going forward, she will indeed cherish her “now” as she takes steps into her future.
Academically, she has persevered through her studies and achieved excellent GCSE results in Y11. She
scored A*s and As in the following subjects: Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Religious Studies, Chinese, English Lit, Mathematics, English Language, History.
Sennett believes in the importance of health and research because she is passionate about the quality of life. Health research helps us understand the cause and effect of certain things. She is also interested in this field because it stresses the importance of personal empowerment. Health research can help empower individuals to take control of their own health and actions. Lastly, research helps us gain deep knowledge and insight on certain topics we may not have known that could be very beneficial to humans. To further her impact, she is a Youth Lead of Catalysing Research Institute, an initiative launched at Catalyst 2030’s annual conference to empower intergenerational research. She further established the Asia Health Science and Research Center to empower youth-led research in the area of life and health science.
In her spare time, she loves spending time with her family, pets and friends. She also likes to play sports such as tennis and read multi-genre books.
Looking ahead, she believes in the importance of ongoing professional and personal growth anchored in interests and passions. Sennett would like to pursue a career in the healthcare and medicine industry, strive to deliver personal bests and achieve any goals she sets her mind to for creating positive impact to her community.
