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

Similar to many former Maryknollers, the red bricks, the classic and tasteful design andstructure of the campus buildings and, also, the peaceful and green environment of the schoolcampus are not only striking and iconic but, more importantly, they provided us with a sense of inspiration and belonging to the Maryknoll family where her traditions, spirit and culture are cultivated and carried. Such is the force that keeps Maryknollers, including, myself sustained with our beliefs and core values when we serve our family and the community.

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

As an appointed Councillor of the Maryknoll Convent School Foundation Ltd., I aspire to be a team player who can contribute to the Foundation. Together with other Councillors, I hope tobe able to serve my mother school and help improve the overall well being of Maryknoll Convent School and its related affairs against the ever challenging and competitive landscape.

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

As a qualified lawyer and, also, with my extensive knowledge and experience in the financial market, in particular, heading up various areas of corporate communications within the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Group in recent years etc., I hope to offer as much as possiblemy relevant skills and knowledge to the Foundation. This may include, legal, educational and/or communications related aspects.
