Three young people won admiration from Mr Tung for their selfless acts and achievements in the face of physical disability. Kwong Lai-yin, 18, Chan Man-fong, 18, and Yeung Yan-yan, 17, were singled out for praise when the Chief Executive delivered his speech on youth development. Ms Kwong was left disfigured after leaping into a blazing kitchen in Hillwood Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, on July 30 to save an elderly neighbour. While rescuing the 79-year-old man, she suffered burns and scalding to her face, neck and arms. Ms Kwong, who is still receiving treatment at Princess Margaret Hospital, will be the youngest and first student recipient of the Bronze Bravery Medal to be awarded this month. 'I am really flattered, I have to thank all my friends and teachers, they give me a lot of support,' she said last night. Ms Kwong, who started Form Six last month, said she had no regrets about helping 'Uncle Law' escape the blaze. 'There should never be regret if you truly want to help someone,' she said. She said many friends and even strangers had visited her and brought her small gifts and cards. The student has to wear pressure clothes every day to help her skin heal. Chan Man-fong, who suffers from Hurler's Syndrome, which affects bone and organ development, won the hearts of many with her dedication to becoming a writer. The student of John F. Kennedy Centre - a school for the disabled - has also developed cataracts, meaning she can barely read without a magnifying glass. She managed to pass three of her four subjects in this year's Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination. Her schoolmate, spinal disorder patient Yeung Yan-yan, impressed Mr Tung with her good results in exams. She gained 28 points, including four As and three Bs, which made her the top student at the school. Maria Wong Yuen-ping, the school's assistant principal, said both students were surprised by Mr Tung's speech. The Chief Executive said: 'It is good to openly praise some good students, it also brings a message to other young people that learning is enjoyable. I am very touched and have great admiration for them. 'On the other hand, It depresses me to read that large numbers of young students are getting poor grades in public examinations, juveniles [are] involved in gang activities, and the youth unemployment rate reaching 29 per cent.'
