"In my four years at HKU, I have been blessed with a plethora of opportunities allowing me to grow to my best capability. Ranging from the Summer Research Fellowship in Year 2, to the Exchange Program in Canada in Year 3, to my current Final Year Project, I have learnt about essential skills required not only in Academia but also personal skills such as time management and communication."

"I love the logic behind science subjects and enjoy explore the world’s mystery. Faculty of Science offered me liberty and flexibility. It empowered me to take a variety of courses. I deeply felt in love with statistics during my first year taking SCNC 1111 course, which used mathematical science to solve real life problems. The more statistics courses I took, the more intrigued I was. 

Over my three years in university, I met amazing professors, tutors, and university staff who gave me lots of advices and guidance towards my study and future career. With the Faculty’s support, I chose risk management as my major. 

I believe university is a place for us to realise our passion and HKU is the perfect place."
