What are some of your aspirations for your coming years at CUHK?

Do you have any advice for other students applying for the scholarship?
“It is useful to think about the meaning of the extracurriculars you do. Perhaps there are issues that you can dig deep into and reaffirm your decision to participate in that extracurricular. Be confident to present yourself!”
