If you don’t know the name Lam Shu Jie, then it’s about time you get to know this super lady.

Dr. Lam Shu Jie is a 27-year-old ‘Malaysian’ scientist who discovered a possible solution to cure Superbug infections. But Australia seems to be more proud of her than Malaysia.

In a Facebook post about Dr. Shu Jie, Bhagat Singh Nejar lamented about how Malaysia has lost yet another talent to foreign countries,

“She was one of the best student in SPM but failed to get our government JPA scholarship to continue her undergraduate degree.”

But she went to Australia anyways to complete her degree there, and things got better for this bright lady!

“With her excellent results from Melbourne University, she got the scholarship from the Australian government to further her postgraduate master degree.

“In addition, with a sponsorship and funds for her research, her excellent research dissertation was noted even during the first year of her PhD study.”

Best of all, Dr. Shu Jie got the amazing recognition she deserved with her breakthrough research in the cure for the superbug infection while in Melbourne University.

Not only is she recognised by the Australian government, even China took note of her epic contribution to the medical industry. She even made headlines in several international portals! That’s how big a deal this is!

“China has just awarded her the illustrious ‘Young Overseas Chinese Award’ in Beijing. China’s Health Minister Gao Qiang personally handed the coveted award to her.”

Even Singapore wanted a piece of that intelligence in their nation!

“Currently, China, Australia and Singapore government and Universities are fighting to recruit her at their research centre respectively.”

“Many believe her quality research work will have massive global impact. She has the potential to win a Nobel Prize in future!

“I wonder why Malaysia isn’t doing anything to rope her back?”

This brought on the sad reality for many Malaysian netizens who found most of our talents have left or are in the midst of leaving our country.

One netizen also expressed her sadness as she said,

“We have so many amazing ‘Malaysians’ that we are extremely proud of but where are they? Cassandra Hsui, Lim Jia Yi, James Wan, Lam Shu Jie, etc.

“These are all names we will proudly call Malaysian but are barely Malaysians anymore as they bring their talents to other countries.

“Would any of them really want to come back here after such great achievements over in greater countries?”

Other people agreed as they too felt it was better off for Dr. Shu Jie to stay elsewhere where her talents will actually be appreciated.

But if all the talents leave our country now, where will the future of Malaysia be?
