Dear Morningsiders, nice to meet you all! I am a graduate of CUHK and I am now teaching at the Department of Government and Public Administration. I love hiking, playing badminton, Chinese calligraphy, history, studying European languages, and many more. You are more than welcome to chat with me when you are free.
Hong Kong is an international city with deep connections with places around the world. It is very modernized, but it is also a city where you could discover relics of waves of globalization. The Morningside College is the miniature of Hong Kong, as we have students from coming different parts of the world. I am sure you will have lots of cultural encounters. I hope all of you will enjoy the life in the Morningside College.

Greetings to all Morningsiders! It’s my great pleasure to continue to serve at the Morningside hostel. I am originally from Beijing, and now a first year PhD student at the Geography Department concentrating on urban studies, planning and heritage conservation. I graduated from the same department 5 years ago and then completed a Master Programme in historic preservation in the US. I enjoy traveling, hiking, exploring cities and listening to music. I am also a big fan of Japanese and Scandinavian cultures. Please always feel free to come over and say hi, and share your ideas or concerns. I look forward to seeing all of you and trying our best to make the hostel and the college a better place!

Welcome to the Morningside family! Here, we support and care for each other like brothers and sisters. I am so happy that you are one of us now. I, myself, am a native CUHK girl. Having spent my undergraduate years in Centre for China Studies, I am currently studying History of Chinese Art in the Department of Fine Arts. Art, in my opinion, is the best form of healing. I hope that the time we spend together as Morningsiders shall be, indeed, a work of art that brings you joy, wellness, and a sense of contentment for college life.

Morningside is full of excitement, chances, challenges and inspiration. I enjoyed exposing myself to different people, by which new ideas and culture can be formed. So, open your mind, embrace everything here and give all you can for YOUR regretless U-life. But do not forget to strike a balance among different aspects of your life, build your interpersonal network and skill set for your career. We all face challenges, void, confusion, and all other kinds of bad things, but I believe there is always someone wants to listen to your story and offer you a helping hand. So, I am here for you, and so are other resident tutors! Perhaps you will find me look unfriendly and distant when I do not smile, but I am really warm-hearted, trust me. Among my interests, I particularly love basketball, Go and protein sciences. Please feel free to talk to me! I am more than happy to share my story with you and learn about yours.

Hi everyone! I had recently completed my PhD studies in the area of Sports Science and started working as Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Physical Education and Sport Science, Faculty of Education. My research is mainly about how to get people to be more active (i.e., do more exercise) and so if you have any questions or problems about how to become more active and therefore more healthy, please come and chat with me.
Background wise, I grew up in Hong Kong but my parents are from mainland, plus I’ve studied in the US, Canada, and an international school based in HK. Therefore combining all these experiences, I consider myself half local half non-local. So if you need any type of advice from a local or non-local perspective, I should be able to help you out at least a little bit!

Dear Moningsiders, a warm greeting to you all! I graduated from the department of Biochemistry at CUHK and am currently pursuing a PhD degree in Orthopaedics and Traumatology. Having lived in the university for the past 6 years, I am more than delighted to share my past experiences and interesting moments with you. University is a place where you pursue knowledge, participate in a diversity of activities, and most importantly, to learn about what you want to be in life. Let’s take on challenges, don’t give up and grow through life. Apart from my studies, I love doing sports, singing and making desserts in my spare time. I am also a great listener and love meeting new friends so please stop by and say Hi whenever you see me around. Hope you all enjoy your college life and I am looking forward to meeting you all!

Hello everyone! I am thrilled to join the Morningside family, and look forward to meeting students from all over the world. Having been a frequent traveller and lover of music, I realize that music can be a universal language to make new friends. I also enjoy reading, writing, swimming, and experimenting with fancy cooking in the kitchen. I speak Mandarin, English, Cantonese, German and French, so feel free to talk to me in any language you are comfortable with!
I am sure you will find your college life rewarding, although we all encounter challenges as we face new experiences. Sometimes college life can be full of sunshine, and other times a bit challenging. Gloomy is part of life and necessary for personal growth. No matter rain or shine, I will be an attentive listener and friend, and always have your best interest at heart.
