Joining CGGS as an international student in Year 10, Shuhan very quickly became a valued member of the CGGS community. Living independently away from her immediate family, Shuhan endured three years without seeing her parents. A mature and conscientious young woman, she was appointed International Captain in 2022, a role which saw her lead and mentor other international students, while at the same time building a strong and connected community.
