Professor Jackie Ying awarded the prestigious Mustafa Prize

Prof. Jackie Ying
Professor Jackie Ying a Singapore based Scientist awarded the prestigious Mustafa prize in the field of Nano-biotechnology. Prof Ying was recognized in particular for her role in developing glucose-sensitive nanoparticles that deliver insulin to diabetic patients only when their blood glucose levels are high.
The system does away with external blood glucose monitoring by finger pricks, and allows insulin to be delivered orally or by the nasal passage, instead of through injections.
The Mustafa Prize recognizes leading researchers and scientists of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member states, and Muslim researchers from around the world. She shared with  "The Straits Times" that she intends to use a portion of the prize money to get more students intrigued about science, such as through exchange trips to renowned overseas science institutions and better-equipped school laboratories. She will start her effort at her alma mater Raffles Girls' School. 
Prof Ying, was born in Taipei, and raised in Singapore and New York, converted to Islam in her 30s.

Reading Passage: IELTS Practice

Feroza’s Childhood

Feroza’s Childhood was full of sufferings and sorrows. She never had a moment of happiness in her life . All she remembered from her childhood was the extreme want of food, want of shelter and want of clothing.
In 1972 at the age of 12 she was married to a 24 year old unemployed man. Feroza entered into her husband’s house with the dreams and hope of a young girl but all she saw was more want. It was Feroza who worked for a handful of grains to feed herself, her mother-in-law and her husband. When her first son was born, she was 19. The birth of a child meant another mouth to feed. Feroza’s toiling days became harder with the birth of her second son in 1982. Read more--------------
