Language English    

Melissa Law is a final year Law student at Cambridge University. Her mother is from Spain, and her father is from Hong Kong. She has lived her whole life in the UK, however she visits Spain twice a year, during the summer and for Christmas and she has also visited Hong Kong on four occasions. Although she has not visited Hong Kong many times her family on her father's side visit England often. As a result she has enjoyed an upbringing with influences from both cultures.

She speaks fluent Spanish, and although she attempted to learn Cantonese at the age of 10 at Chinese school, she found it difficult and lost interest, something she now regrets as she wishes she could communicate better with those members of her family who speak little English. Her interests include travel, music and sport.
