Puzzled and dazzled by the overwhelming university and programme choices, I struggled to find one that attracted me most after graduating from high school. Fortunately, Social Science Broad-based programme at CUHK has allowed me to explore different Social Science disciplines before deciding my path. I feel thankful for the professors and senior students who shared their experiences generously during orientation camp, tea gatherings and academic counselling sessions.
The Faculty is keen on introducing extra-curricular exposures to support students’ all-round development. I was invited to be the master of ceremony at the Faculty’s Appreciation Achievement Award Celebration. Although I was not experienced in public speaking, I was greatly supported to sharpen my communication and facilitation skills. The Faculty has also been very helpful in guiding me along the application process for the Hong Kong Jockey Club Scholarship. I feel very thankful for their assistance because the prestigious scholarship has provided me with a platform to interact with other talented and socially-minded scholars. Overall, my freshman year has been a great adventure that taught me to be curious and courageous.
