Vicky Yip, TOEIC Bridge™ Scholarship Awardee

One of the awardees of TOEIC Bridge™ Scholarship, Vicky Yip from Diploma in Bakery, Pastry and Confectionary said, “I want to become a western chef, and I must have a good command of English.” Vicky was also named by a famous French chef recently as the Outstanding Young Western Chef. After school, she loves to surf the internet to read the recipes and study the English names of the ingredients. Also, she often watches foreign cooking videos for inspirations on designing her own dishes. She believes that the TOEIC Bridge™ certification can help her find an ideal job, as her employers and customers will be from around the Globe and she need to communicate fluently with them in English.
