"No Harm in Trying..."
The phrase that spurred 2 time scholarship recipient Audrey to go the extra mile

During the interview with Audrey, she mentioned this phrase a few times, "No harm in trying...."

The only Reach Cambridge Summer Program recipient from Indonesia that year to obtain a fully paid scholarship to pursue the course, Audrey was initially hesitant to apply  when Ichthus shared the program with the students.  She had to save up for university.  Ms Martha, kepala sekolah, encouraged her and said "No harm in trying for the scholarship, what is there to lose?". That advise resonated with Audrey. With strong recommendation letters from the school and rounds of screening and interviews  later, Audrey obtained a full scholarship and had an unforgettable experience in Cambridge that summer. 

Deja Vu all over, Mr Andy, English teacher knowing what Audrey is capable of despite her preference for the sciences, said to her,  "Take up English Literature Audrey, no harm in trying, you will be surprised",  A year later, Audrey was pleasantly surprised to receive the Cambridge Excellence Award for English Literature scoring the highest marks for the subject in Indonesia. 

Audrey went on to receive  a full scholarship for her undergraduate studies in  Engineering in University of Hong Kong.
