I will contribute my professional knowledge to serve the community!
“Professionalism means the capability to apply the highest standards of practice, coupled with the determination to meet high ethical standards and make a positive impact on the society. Grateful for what the society has nurtured in me, I am serving on the boards of several public and social organisations to contribute my two cents back to the community.”

Scholarship in the past has made me what I am now!
“I am grateful for all who have helped me in my formative years. Besides making donations to my alma mater, I also provide various learning opportunities to younger alumni at my workplace.

IVElite has made me a proactive, goal-oriented person
“Under teacher’s nomination, I have the precious opportunity to join IVElite, an outcome-based student development programme, where we learnt to formulate our own learning objectives, learning plan and based on which to evaluate its effectiveness. From conceptualisation, preparation, publicity to staging of the event, we worked closely with each other and overcame many issues encountered.
It was from these challenging teamwork experiences that we realised the importance of goal-setting. As long as objectives are clearly defined, members would be more proactive and willing to work together, a lot of the tough issues and challenge could then be easily resolved.”

Participating in the WorldSkills Competition and interacting with other young competitors from around the world have benefited me extensively
“It has been a great honour for me to represent Hong Kong to participate in the WorldSkills Competition held in Leipzig, Germany, which is regarded as the “Skill Olympics”. The competition was beyond technical expertise exchange with participants from different countries and regions. It has given me the chance to raise my skills to international standard. It has also strengthened my stress management skills and my ability to adapt to changes which cannot be learned simply from books. I believe this will offer me an enhanced edge in my future development.”

The scholarship I was awarded changed my mother’s perception of me!
"Owing to financial difficulties, I was not able to afford my own set of graphic tools, and was forced to stay behind in campus to complete my school work. My hard work has finally paid off when I was awarded the CYMA Charity Fund Scholarship, a recognition for the extensive academic improvements I made. The Scholarship changed my mother’s perception of me, when she realised what a hardworking daughter she had! Gaining my mother’s recognition and praise has bolstered my morale as well.
I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to the Foundation which has made a huge difference in my life as it has done for many other students and their families.”
