I had the opportunity to work as an intern for Beijing Television and CCTV respectively. The precious work experience has brought me one step closer to my dream. Because of CIE, I am able to witness my own improvement and become more confident in achieving my goals.
I invested my scholarships to run a small business at the Lunar New Year Fair with my schoolmates. Through this project, I gained entrepreneurship experience and got to explore the market trends in Hong Kong. The valuable experience has given me a lot of inspiration about my future career path.
