Thank you - HKU Taster and Academy for the Talented

When I was in high school, I participated in various HKU Taster programmes and exclusive events organised by the prestigious HKU Academy for the Talented. Now that I’m a student at HKU, it’s my turn to inspire the younger generations and help them discover their potentials. I’m delighted to share my study tips and vibrant university life with the young fellows!
