A Brentwood student has been invited to speak at an international conference in China and present her research into attentional bias and eating disorders.
Seventeen-year-old Julieanna Ouyang, a School Sixth Form boarding student at Brentwood School, whose in-depth study was inspired by a friend who has since recovered from an eating disorder, completed her manuscript outside of school hours and under own steam.
She should present her manuscript ’A Review of Attention Bias and Eating Disorder’ to the 2021 International Conference on Public Relations and Social Sciences (ICPRSS) which will be held in Kunming, China, in September.
The aim of IPRSS 2021 is to bring together innovative academics and industrial experts in the field of public relations, social sciences and other research areas. The primary goal of the conference is to promote scientific information interchange between researchers, developers, students, and practitioners working all around the world. The conference will be held every year to make it an ideal platform for people to share views and experiences.
Julieanna said: ”Quite a lot of things inspired me to write this review. I’ve always been interested in psychology and I study psychology as a higher level International Baccalaureate course, which I find fascinating.”
If coronavirus restrictions mean Julieanna is unable to present her manuscript to the conference in person, her hard work will still be included on Advances in Social Science, Education and Humanities Research scholarly articles.
