Personal growth and encountered challenges while abroad by Mavis Fan (FS13/14, The University of Hong Kong)
Mavis received the  Fung Scholarship for a 1-year exchange at The University of Liverpool in 2013/14AY during which she had the opportunity to explore different towns in Britain, read different subjects, and work at a Chinese restaurant to enrich her overseas experience.  In this sharing, Mavis will recount her encounter and challenges and how this experience has benefited whole person development.
Overseas work experience as a scientist by Harry Choi (FS11/12, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University)
