I was born in Macau, formerly a colony of the Portuguese empire, now well-known as one of the special administrative regions of the People’s Republic of China and the gambling capital of the world.

In 2004, I left my hometown and started my education journey with 3 years in mainland China followed by 7 years in the UK. After graduating from King’s College London with a bachelor degree in Biomedical Science, I started to work as a project coordinator in a political campaign for the UK general election 2015, promoting the political representation of British-Chinese through education, participation and representation. It was a wonderful learning experience that broadened my vision and shaped my values on our community and the humanities.

4 years ago, I started my career in international trading, focusing on cold-chain logistic services for China’s export. As part of my job, I had to be a frequent traveller to maintain our service efficiency in Southeast Asia, US and Europe. I gained the necessary expertise which involves strategic planning, negotiation skills and an understanding of business culture in both East and West.

Pursuing an MBA had always been my teenage dream. I believed it was now the right time for me to enhance my knowledge of the current business world and to dig into my undiscovered talents. My MBA experience so far has been amazing. The Career Developmnet Office (CDO) provided us tailored training to help us understand our strengths and weaknesses. From those diverse workshops, I have found my real passion in my career and decided to focus on sales and marketing in the luxury brand business. I was so excited when I found out that my mentor is the director of the luxury group LVMH. A big thank you to the CDO office.

I truly treasure the time with my bright classmates at HKU, and I strongly feel that this is the place that will take me to where I should be and give me what I want in my future career.
