Experience from HKBAW Operation Committee

I ended up studying abroad here in Seattle after five high schools and colleges in Maine, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania over the span of six years. To join an organization that is open to have volunteers help create events and provide us real world opportunities to learn from is amazing.

As an outreach marketing assistant intern at HKBAW., I can share my ideas and get respected for diligent work, and most importantly, a belonging I am always looking for.  No matter if we are speaking Madarin, Shanghainese, Cantonese, or English, our team members can speak freely as a big family in this team. It is a place where I can share my ideas and got respected on diligent work, and most importantly, a belonging I was always looking for. Thank you to the team, Cynthia, and Homing, providing me the opportunity to stay connected to Hong Kong and mainland China, and strive to be a better person.
