Let dreams take flight

The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust attaches great importance to the development of youths and encourages them to pursue their goals and dreams.  By dedicating themselves to professional developments, they will be able to give back to society and benefit more people, being the beneficiaries themselves. Because of this, the Trust has established the Vocational Education Scholarship, in the mission to finance VTC Higher Diploma graduates to undertake overseas undergraduate programmes related to aviation engineering/maritime studies or design.  In addition, the Trust also finances Youth College’s Diploma of Vocational Education graduates to progress to VTC Higher Diploma programmes.

My dreams

Youths are full of dreams but pursuing them is a process fraught with difficulties. Awarded The Hong Kong Jockey Club Vocational Education Scholarship, Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE) graduate Sean Tse is now seeking a further education in the United Kingdom.  He is enrolled at Swansea University to study Aerospace Engineering, where he can continue reaching for his goals.

Sean has always loved to dismantle things, then reassemble them and study the inner parts of machines from a young age.  After being admitted to Youth College, he realised his ambition was in aircraft design. “In Hong Kong, I learnt how to repair and maintain aircrafts.  And in the United Kingdom, I will learn aircraft design, engage in onsite learning of how aircrafts are structured and have the opportunity to participate in an all-new university project ── applying aircraft jet-engine technology to design a car capable of moving at 1,000 miles per hour, in an attempt to set a world record in automobile speed. I look forward to it with great anticipation.”

I must also do my bit to help others achieve their dreams

Looking to the future upon his graduation, Sean hopes that he can help others achieve their dreams. “I will share the future of aerospace engineering with other students, what it takes to join the profession so that they could ascertain their development paths.”
