Wong Lai-hung, Shirley
Graduate of Associate in Design (Visual Communication)
Articulated into CUHK’s Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts
Looking back to the setback in the public examination, I believe that taking a hard road may be more suitable for me. When everybody couldn’t wait any longer to further their studies in university, I spent one year on studying for the Associate in Applied Social Sciences (Social Policy and Administration) programme before I found my real interest in design and transferred to the Associate in Design (Visual Communication) programme. To me, walking the right path is much more important than walking fast. While we study hard, we also need to enjoy our youth because ten years later, it’s our personal growth and experiences rather than faded lecture notes that matter; and it’s the memories of our school days rather than a certificate alone that are precious.
