Sum-yi, who is majoring in visual studies, thanked LU’s Faculty of Arts for nominating her for the scholarship, which was a great encouragement and recognition for all dedicated arts students, demonstrating enthusiasm for their interests and the worthiness of visual studies.
Ringo Wong Wing-ho (Contemporary English Studies, Year 4) has been awarded an HSBC Greater Bay Area (Hong Kong) Scholarship. He will receive HK$80,000 towards his clear-sighted plans for a long-term career in the GBA and in-depth understanding of the necessary skills and knowledge.
“Lingnan has provided me with many opportunities to meet like-minded friends and explore various things. With Lingnan’s guidance, I have started a start-up that aims to develop a Cantonese learning app for both locals and non-locals. I will continue to seek opportunities in business and further studies in the Greater Bay Area,” Ringo said, who is keen in promoting Cantonese education and teaching secondary students.
