Ms. WONG Lai-chi

Best Progress Award in 2019/20 Academic Year
Higher Diploma in Pharmaceutical Dispensing
Caritas Bianchi College of Careers

First of all, I would like to thank the Government for giving me the Best Progress Award this year on the recommendation of my College.  I am sure there are many others who are more deserving of this than myself.  Still, I see the award as a token of recognition for my hard work.  It gives me immense satisfaction and means a great deal to me.

My performance in the first semester of my university studies was so poor that I began to wonder if I should drop out early.  But thanks to the encouragement and support of my teachers, I realised that everyone runs into problems at some point in their life and when this happens, we should rise to challenges instead of running away.  I gradually got to the root of my problems, stopped slacking and took every course seriously.  I actively took notes in class, and, to compensate for my poor memory, reviewed what I learnt at home to consolidate my learning.  My academic performance improved as a result.

Those who work tirelessly are blessed with good fortune.  I have started to believe in the old saying of “Heaven rewards the diligent”.  Last year was a meaningful year and it went by in a blink as I found a renewed zeal for my studies.  Apart from achieving academic progress, I have seen myself growing day by day.  Now, I am no longer a slacker and I strive for improvement every day.  I will brave whatever challenges that lie ahead of me and chart a new course by giving full play to my potential.

Talent Development Scholarship in 2019/20 Academic Year
Bachelor of Nursing with Honours in General Health Care
The Open University of Hong Kong

I like trying out new things and I like playing sports.  I used to be a member of the basketball team in my secondary school.  It was in a PE lesson that I was first introduced to kin-ball.  That was an eye-opening experience as kin-ball is a team sport with its unique mechanics.  I have been in love with it ever since.  Kin-ball is the ultimate spectator sport because of the huge size of the ball.  However, it is not popular in Hong Kong and only a handful of local schools have their own kin-ball teams.  With little room for the sport to develop, I thought of giving up the idea of becoming a kin-ball player.  Fortunately, my basketball coach was also coaching kin-ball at the time, and the school wanted to find out if kin-ball had the potential to become a major sport.  So our school basketball team took part in a kin-ball novice competition and the rest is history.

I have been playing kin-ball for a year now and have never missed a single training session no matter where or when it is held.  I enjoy collaborating with my teammates and relish the victory of a well-played game.  I have competed in many local competitions.  Win or lose, each match reveals my weaknesses and motivates me to overcome them.  I have greatly improved my skills and become a stronger player over time.

In 2019, I was drafted by the Hong Kong U19 team to play in a kin-ball competition in Singapore.  I was thrilled because it was an honour representing Hong Kong, not to mention my first-ever appearance in an overseas competition.  As team leader, I was nervous and feeling the pressure before the matches.  I made a string of careless mistakes at the beginning, costing the team precious points.  But then I calmed myself down, hit my stride and led the team to the top of the podium.  It was not all about the trophy, though.  Competitions present valuable opportunities for me to test my skills against other players, as well as teaching me how to control emotions and handle stress.

I am privileged to be awarded the Talent Development Scholarship.  It is a recognition of the efforts I put into the sport, and it prompts me to keep working hard.  Playing kin-ball is one of the turning points of my life, and being picked for the Hong Kong team was beyond my wildest dream.  What I want to say is that everyone has talent.  You will find yours someday, so do not give up easily as you may be the next shining star.

The programme Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) – Hotel Management organized by CIHE has given me a big picture of my study plan and future career path.

The teachers are gladly willing to have interactions with students and we are welcome to raise questions and have discussions together after class.

Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Chinese, Year 3
Hong Kong Nang Yan College of Higher Education

In our college, professors are very enthusiastic and friendly; they pay much attention to the progress of our studies. They also give us the necessary care about our campus life and needs.

Classmates at NYC are not only my nice groupmates when doing projects but also buddies in enjoying the college life. It is my pleasure to be the president of the student union for academic year 2017/18. The college gives me many opportunities to broaden my horizons; I was the master of ceremonies for the 2017/18 NYC inauguration ceremony. I also have the chance to carry out significant and successful events such as the Orientation Camp and the Snowy Mooncake Workshop. Later on, there will be a singing contest and handicraft workshop.

The College organizes many co-curricular and extracurricular activities every year. I am much honored to be runner-up in the writing competition and New Year greeting card design competition and third place in the table tennis competition. Apart from competition, the college also encourages students to participate in the charitable activities, off-campus competitions, overseas exchanges, and internship placements. I am ICAC and HKCAA Ambassador of NYC and have the opportunity to meet other ambassadors of other Colleges.

Mr. OUYANG Buyi

Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Economics and Finance (2016), Year 3
Hong Kong Shue Yan University

As a student from mainland China, I think it was quite challenging for me to pick up study when I first came to Hong Kong two years ago, mainly because of the language barrier. But with the enthusiasm for study and help from peers and lecturers, I have overcome the difficulty in learning and improved my Cantonese and English. With my lectures’ guidance and my own effort, I have been able to be included in the University’s President List for two consecutive years.

Apart from academic study, the University has provided various extra-curricular activities to develop my abilities in different aspects. For example, to improve my speaking skill and presentation skill, I joined in my university’s Putonghua Debate Team and Recitation Team. Besides, to accumulate my work experience and social experience, I had an internship at a bank this summer. And now, I have a placement at People’s Effort Credit Union in Hong Kong. What’s more, to help the students of Years 1 and 2 in our department, I joined the Peer Support Group at the beginning of this semester, and I am now helping my mentees to tackle their learning problems every week. In fact, when I successfully help them to solve a problem, it gives me a great sense of achievement!

He aspired to pursue a Bachlor’s Degree at OUHK before joining the industry.

BA (Hons) in Hospitality Management ; Year 2 in 2016/17 academic year
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University - School of Professional Education and Executive Development

I was one of the successful applicants who had the chance to work as an intern in Cambodia in summer 2016, thanks to the internship programme offered by the School.

During the 3-month internship period, I was required to work in the Hong Kong Office and the Song Saa Private Island Resort in Cambodia for one and a half months in each of the two locations.

When I was working in the head office, I was responsible for drafting reports and proposals in marketing and research areas. In the Song Saa Resort, I had worked in the Guest Experience Department to welcome guests and help them to check-in. I had also worked in the Food and Beverage Team where I learnt making drinks and serving guests. I have learnt a lot of hospitality skills during this rewarding internship, not only the operational knowledge that related to my study, but also the concept behind running a hotel.

Apart from the practical knowledge that I learnt from this internship, I have also learnt how to solve problems when facing challenges. I have improved my communication skills and made a lot of new friends. All my colleagues were very friendly and nice to me. Working as an intern in a foreign country was an amazing and memorable experience to me. I really enjoyed this internship opportunity.
