What is your first memory of the school, (and if relevant, how did that influence you)?

I still remember our English teacher from the US who took us for lessons under the big tree outside the school office.  What other schools in HK can provide such a free environment for learning?  Besides, sisters and teachers from the US in the sixties had brought to us liberal thoughts from the West!  They have encouraged freedom of speech, helped students express their feelings, brought equality among all and demonstrated respect for one another.  These values are implanted deep in my heart and are important to my becoming a respectable member of the society.

As a Councillor, what ambition or aspirations do you have?

I am so grateful to Mayrknoll and would like to contribute in whatever way I could to the School.

What kind of skills, knowledge, or contribution do you bring to the school as a Councillor?

With my connection with Maryknoll in the past fifty years and two generations studying in Maryknoll, I would do my best to continue the Maryknoll spirit!
