The awardees passionately participated in the Peer Mentoring Program and willingly took initiative to assist, support, and frequently communicate with mentees online/offline/in-person during the pandemic.

The SBM Peer Mentoring Program connects me and other fantastic people within the same school. Instead of helping mentees, this platform provides me a precious opportunity to build a life-long relationship and grow with them together. It is so gratifying to see my mentees adapt to university life, explore various possibilities and unlock their potential in this amazing environment.
Being a Peer Mentor has been quite the rewarding experience for me! Through this program, I've had the chance to interact with some of the younger, brighter minds that come into UST. I've had the chance to develop myself as a person, while providing assistance and support of various kinds for students. I'm honored to have received this chance to share my thoughts and experiences with the freshmen, and hope that I have helped make a welcoming environment for them to smoothly transition their way in to!

It is my pleasure to serve the freshman and connect them through the Peer Mentoring program. We may have felt lonely under the pandemic, so the program offered the opportunity to take care of each other and learn from senior students, like sharing my success and failure with Associate Degree students after studying in HKUST for one year. I was so grateful to see most of them actively participating in university life.
WONG, Wai Kit Curtis
The SBM Peer Mentoring Program is one of the most rewarding experiences of my university life. This program provides opportunities for both senior students and freshmen to get to know each other at HKUST and we can further develop our career with the benefit of the connection as well. Also, having an enthusiastic peer mentor when I was a freshman has inspired me to become a mentor and contribute myself to assist my mentees with their academic confusion.
Let’s congratulate the awardees in their outstanding participation in their Peer Mentoring journey!!
