10X student has first scientific report on Harvard’s website

Van Ngoc Kim Ngan, a former high school literary major for the gifted, decided to study biochemistry at university. She recently published her scientific report on a Harvard University website.

Van Ngoc Kim Ngan

Born in 2001, Negan is a sophomore biochemist at Penn State University in the United States. Prior to that, she was a 10th grade student at the High School for the Gifted at HCMC National University and an 11th grader in Singapore before coming to the United States to study in 12th grade.

Her scientific report, published on the Harvard University website, revolves around the impact of Covid-19 on the psyche of women before and after childbirth. This was her first scholarly work as a member of a student research team at Harvard University.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Ngan had to leave the United States last year. Therefore, it was necessary to carry out an online search. The biggest problem for her was the frequent refusal when looking for someone to interview.

“I’ve emailed hundreds of professors in the US, but only one answered and agreed to help,” she recalls.

It took a lot of time for Ngan to get the information. She had to work hard to search for data on the topic and turn it into schemes to prove her theoretical points.

Despite the great effort, Negan’s research work was not immediately accepted. She had to correct it five times to get the final version.

Research motivated her to continue scientific research and strive to achieve greater goals.

She embarked on her second research work on comparing the effects of different vaccines. She is a member of the university’s research team on carbon and the environment. Planning to apply to a research institute next summer.

She is now studying biochemistry, and was majoring in literature in high school. In fact, high school entrance exams for the gifted are very challenging, and students must be good in all subjects, including natural sciences, to pass the exams.

She decided to study biochemistry when she was in the eleventh grade in Singapore, when she was heartbroken that she could not save the life of her relative who had died of cancer.

The decision surprised many people. But her mother supported the daughter’s decision.

It was her mother who supported Ngan’s decision to attend the exam to the HCM City Conservatory, while others thought this was beyond her ability. And she passed the college piano exam in school.

When he left Singapore for the US, Ngan had to take some time to adjust to US culture and environment. The advice of the mother helped her to overcome the difficulties that she faced.
