15- year old Cherly Chow from Kuala Lumpur has once again cemented Malaysia's position on the global academic landscape by beating out close to 15,000 students from Japan, China, Korea, Singapore and more to emerge as the top participant in the highly recognised Mangahigh East Asia Maths Ninja Challenge 2019.
To say that Cherly Chow, a 15-year-old Beaconhouse Sri Inai International School student, is a maths whizz is a bit of an understatement. After all, how many people can boast beating out other maths enthusiasts from Japan, China, Korea and Singapore when it comes to solving Maths games and adaptive quizzes.
But Chow beat them all, scoring more than 1,000 points on the way to being crowned the overall top participant at the prestigious Mangahigh East Asia Maths Ninja Challenge 2019, a competition that saw 14,240 students from across East Asia taking part.
The Mangahigh East Asia Maths Ninja Challenge 2019 was a 12-day online maths competition that ran from 23 September to 4 October. Students were given unique training and then assigned maths-related activities on a daily basis, which offered up a total of 3 points per activity. At the end of the 12-day challenge the students achieving over 200 points received gold medals while the school with the most cumulative points was named the overall winner.
“I am incredibly excited about the win. Maths is one of my greatest passions so to have done so well in the competition was a big highlight for me. The Maths Ninja Challenge was so unique and getting to compete with my fellow students with the help of our teachers from Beaconhouse Sri Inai was such a memorable experience,” said Chow.
Congratulations Cheryl! You've done Malaysia proud!
