Chris Deng, an outstanding student born in Baram, Sarawak is among the 14% of students in the world who is being offered to further his studies at Oxford University. As reported by Awani, Chris, who is of Kayan-Kenyah ethnic, initially could not fathom that he could get the opportunity to continue his studies in law at the prestigious university.

Chris, whose parents were the inspiration for his success, hopes to prove that students from such ethnic minorities can also make a name for themselves on the international stage. He grew up in Bintulu and was sent to a boarding school since at 13 years old. In addition to consistently recording excellent results in academics, Chris is also active in co-curricular activities such as debate and music. Chris then continued his studies at the Mara Science Junior College (MRSM) Mukah and completed his A-Level studies at the UEM Foundation College, Lembah Beringin, Selangor.
