Meet the Champions

Charis Chua: A student at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Charis won in the Hospitality and Events Internship category. Her background in public relations and her exceptional communication skills shone through in her comprehensive case study, which highlighted her ability to engage effectively with audiences.

Reflecting on her journey, Charis said, “I was 15 years old when I first dreamt of working in Formula One. The passion of everyone involved in the sport really drew me in, and I promised myself I would work hard to be part of it one day. When the Red Bull Intern Championship was announced, I knew it was the opportunity I had been waiting for. Winning it wasn’t easy, and I was visibly shaking when I received the winners’ email. This internship is an invaluable experience, and I can't wait to embark on this journey with the Red Bull Racing team.”

Heng Yi-Hsin: Also an NTU student, Yi-Hsin won the Red Bull Relations Internship. Her experience includes an internship at The Straits Times, where she honed her photojournalism skills, and a previous role as a Marketing and Advocacy Intern. Her passion, creativity, and wit were evident in her short video submission, which gave her an edge in the competition.

Yi-Hsin shared her excitement, saying, “I stumbled upon F1 a few years ago and was immediately hooked. Working in F1 felt like a pipe dream, so when the Red Bull Intern Championship was announced, I knew I had to give it my all. It feels incredibly surreal to be part of the Oracle Red Bull Racing team!”
