As a social sector leader, why have you chosen to pursue an MBA?
Our world has always experienced change, but the rate of change now is exploding exponentially. Continuing to learn, in order to keep up with the demands of life, is the best preparation for me. The pandemic has completely altered our lives and posed unique challenges in the social service sector. I want new tools to help me work on behalf of those who suffer from mental illness, especially during this ‘new normal.’ I’m hoping to gain some practical skills and new frameworks to help me lead my team through this difficult time. Ultimately, I am hoping to leverage these new resources to create lasting social impact in Hong Kong. All of these reasons have driven me to pursue an MBA.
What have you enjoyed about your Booth experience so far?
The classes have been the most impressive of my life, even though they were in a virtual format! Boothies strive hard to learn together and support each other, from technical issues to the intensive course work. The diversified expertise of my classmates, the team power, and the spirit to advance all propel me in a new and exciting direction.
How does it feel to receive the Hong Kong Jockey Club Scholarship? What does it mean to you?
The Hong Kong Jockey Club scholarship has helped me secure the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn and grow in the Booth Executive MBA Program in Hong Kong. I am sure the valuable knowledge and insights will enable me to pursue my dreams of bringing impact to underprivileged communities.
