Despite the influence of the social movement activities and COVID-19, I am glad to meet Ju and Trista in person two times apart from electronic means. It is grateful to know them since they are energetic, proactive and curious about future career. And interestingly, I get to know a Korean mentee in my Korean career journey. Hope they like my sharing and I look forward to staying in touch with them.

The SBM UG Career Mentorship Program has been a very fruitful experience for me. I have gained a lot in personal growth and finding my career path.

Dorris LEUNG
Mentor
Sr. Service Manager, Standard Chartered Bank
The mentorship program enables us to connect with current students, it feels like a jamming with artists from different generations and backgrounds, it always sparks off some surprises. The journey with John and Katharina has been very inspiring. The chemistry worked well as we shared the same passion of self-improvements with an open mind. Every time we caught up, it reminded me to stay aspired to our dream, keep a can-do attitude in mid of uncertainties, and read our world with fresh eyes, like the Day One I was admitted to HKUST and at my first job after graduated. Everyone of us can make a difference at any ages, so let's join us to explore a mentorship journey to give back, to refresh and to make some positive influence.

I am lucky and blessed to have Cynthia as my mentor. Being a baby-mother was incredibly busy, but she was willing to spare her time for mentoring us. Her kindness and willingness to share her own experiences are highly appreciated.

So happy to be able to give advices on their career path, courses selections, when should they get marry, when did my wife stop working, should they do lasik on their eyes etc. At times I asked myself, what’s the difference between a mentor and a father? Love to share with my experiences with them. The trust they gave me. So happy to see them growing. Wish I had a mentor back then.
