The housing affordability of Hong Kong ranks the least affordable city inDemographia International Housing Affordability Survey conducted by Demographiarecently for 406 cities around the world. The housing price in Hong Kong hasexperienced substantial deterioration and life of citizens becomes hard becauseof this. Facing the intense problem in the society. I always wonder if therewill be capable measure to tackle with it. This unreasonable housing phenomenonin Hong Kong has spurred my interest in economics and that’s why I choseEconomics as one of my electives in my high school. Learning the basic conceptsof Economics in high school, how government intervention can make the economyfluctuate a lot etc, I have found what I want to learn in university, economicsand management.
I have practiced “GO” chess for acouple years. Each step of “GO” chess will lead to a totally differentconsequences of the whole game and thus it requires a highly concentration,patient and able to bear hardship in order to win the game. Throughout thetraining and learning, I have learnt not to renounce so easily, but to staystrong tenaciously, think in different aspect in order to solve the problemadequately.
Fortunately, I won a team champion in “Siu Kei Shing Cup” held bythe Hong Kong Chinese Chess School. Just like economics, there are a bunch ofways to clinch an economic problems, but never will there be a way to overcomeit perfectly. What we do is to consider each method analytically in certainaspects to maximize the benefits brought to public and to minimize the cost.The learning of “GO” chess has enhanced my problem solving skill a lot andpotentiate in further Economics studies. Besides, I am one of the organisersof Leadership Camp for the secondary school. Forming a group of 10 organisersto hold a camp of around 150 people is never a simple job. We had to decidewhether which campsite was the most suitable destination, when to start theevent, how long we should stay etc. We have done much preparation work toensure smooth rundown of the event such as going to the campsite before thecamp to decide where different games and functions can be held in the campsite,simulate the games before the camp to ensure that participants can enjoy muchjoy and learn the skills the camp emphasises – leadership skills.
Fortunately,everything was under control and we did spend a great time there. I am reallygrateful that I can be involved in organizing this event that I couldexperience of managing hundreds of people I have never had before. My interestof studying management has been intrigued since then and devote myself in it. Life balance is important. Besideshave vocation experience, I also enjoy engaging in different sorts of extracurricular activities, and now I am a member of Hong Kong Youth Volleyball Team(under the age of 18). I took part in Mock Legislative Council held by HongKong Youth Leaders Association and enhance my awareness on Hong Kong politicsenvironment. I hope one day I can turn Hong Kong to be a better one. I don’t want to be the frog in thewell knowing nothing of the great ocean so I hope I can continue my college inthe UK, explore more innovative ideas here and meet people of differentbackground.
I will study Economics and Management assiduously to seek for thebirth of proactive ideas that can change Hong Kong or even entirely the wholeworld.
