Throughout my high school journey, the only thing I was sure about was that I wanted to pursue engineering during my undergraduate studies. I applied for HKUST a day before the deadline, and at that time I could not imagine this would be the starting point of an extremely thrilling and rewarding journey.
Coming to university far away from your friends and family is certainly difficult. But I quickly realized that HKUST would become my second home and people I met here would be by my side. My first year at HKUST was nothing less than amazing. The flexibility of being able to experience all the engineering fields before finally declaring my major made me sure about my decision to pursue Computer Science and AI. Along the way, I met some of the most brilliant and genuine people in my life, and this was only possible through various student societies and competitions that the School of Engineering exposed me to.
Looking back at my journey, I am proud of the person I have grown into over the last year, and I look forward to the opportunities ahead of me.
