Yiu Yi Hin Kinsey

Student: Hwa Chong Institution

Hi! I am Kinsey Yiu from Singapore. I’m currently 16 years old and a Secondary 4 student at Hwa Chong Institution. I live with my family, which consists of my parents and older sister, who often provide me with care and support. I am a part of my school’s Science and Math Talent Programme, which has provided me with the opportunity to partake in research projects. In my free time, I enjoy playing chess with my family and friends. My favourite musical instrument is the harmonica as I like composing (more accurately convincing myself that I am succeeding) my own melodies. I also enjoy watching comedy shows like Yes Minister and Mr Bean.

Tell us what the water concern in your country is!

With Singapore being a city-state, she has a limited water supply. Singapore has thus launched the 4 taps policy - that being water from local catchments, imports, desalination and NEWater. Nonetheless, we do not take water for granted. Singapore prioritises researching cost-effective, sustainable water treatment technologies.
