''What you’ve explored is what you’ll become''

President - WONG, Chi Ka

        A warm welcome to our website! I am Chi Ka, a year-one student studying Medicine at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. I am very honoured to be given the opportunity to serve the association as the President of the Executive Committee in the coming year. 

 

        My journey in HKOSA started two years ago in the Hong Kong Outstanding Students' Award election. Caught by surprise by the challenging questions in the written test, I had a glimpse of the high standards upheld by OSA. The desire to step out of my comfort zone prompted me to join the Association as a sub-committee member. The ensuing experience helped me gain insight into what “outstanding” truly means, and showed how powerful it can be when a group of talents unite over a common goal. OSA is more than just an election -- it is a supportive family in which everyone can find a unique position and reach their potential. As a member of the Organising Committee of Business Flyer 2017, I was given guidance and advice from the generous ExCos and other OSArs. Now, being part of the ExCo myself, it is our hope to pass on this spirit and continue to help other youngsters grow through our series of programmes.

 

        This year, under the theme “What you’ve explored is what you’ll become”, we shall strive together with the common goal to contribute to not only the OSA family, but also society as a whole. Our predecessors have accumulated an impressive list of achievements over the years. In the coming year, we will continue to uphold the values of OSA and organise programmes with equally high standard for all our members and the community. The highlights this year include a Summer Camp, which allows participants to leave their comfort zone to explore their interests as well as to reconsider their priorities and long-term goals. Furthermore, a Social Discussion Programme will be held, where through company visits, young people can be inspired to innovate and share their thoughts on building a better society through policymaking. In addition, through a Social Service Series, participants will have the opportunity to explore a plethora of volunteering activities. The organisation of a Mock Interview will equip participants with the skills they need for university interviews, bringing them one step closer to their dream career.

 

        “What you’ve explored is what you’ll become.”

 

        With the collective effort of our advisors, council members, all Executive Committee members and your support, we believe HKOSA will continue to flourish. We look forward to seeing you in our upcoming programmes!
