Congratulations Lynda Li, 2022 Global Undergraduate Award Winner!

Congratulations to BKin student Lynda Li for winning the 2022 Global Undergraduate Award for the Social Science: Sociology & Social Policy category! She will receive the award at The Global Undergraduate Awards’ annual Summit in Dublin on November 8, 2022.

Each year, thousands of students from around the world submit their undergraduate research projects to The Global Undergraduate Awards (GUA), the world’s leading pan-discipline, undergraduate research awards programme. These submissions are reviewed by more than 600 academics who volunteer as judges and pick just 25 Global Winners, one from each category.

Lynda won the Social Science: Sociology & Social Policy category for her work titled “From Victims to Visionaries: Representations of Older Asian Adults in Canadian News Media during COVID-19”. With that honour, she is invited to attend the Global Summit from November 6-9, 2022, in Dublin. The highlight of this three-day-long event is the Gala Dinner’s awards ceremony on November 8, where Lynda and 24 other Global Winners will receive the Thomas Clarkson Gray Gold Medal for their work.
