HKBU student wins outstanding service award for exemplary voluntary work
Tse Wing-lam (Translation, Year 4) recently won the Outstanding Service Awards for Tertiary Students jointly presented by the Hong Kong Student Services Association and the Hong Kong Outstanding Tertiary Students’ Services Association in recognition of her exceptional record of voluntary service, extracurricular activities, academic achievements and leadership potential. She is one of the 20 students from local tertiary institutions who were honoured with the award this year.
Of the many voluntary activities Wing-lam has participated in, a large proportion were devoted to the advocacy of children’s rights. She is keen to find out the true meaning of voluntary work. Wing-lam currently serves as a member of UNICEF Club Taskforce to assist Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF in organising training programmes for secondary school students, so as to facilitate learning of child rights and personal growth. She also has a wealth of voluntary work experience in a number of charities and welfare groups, including Po Leung Kuk BMCPC Life Education and Elderly Support Centre, Community Business, The Neighbourhood Advice-Action Council, Hong Kong Family Welfare Society and the University’s Rotaract Club, through which she realised that the essence of being a volunteer is to help people benefit more.
Through volunteering, Wing-lam hopes to encourage more people to explore the true meaning of voluntary work and motivate more people, based on respect and responsibilities, to assist those in need and enable them to enjoy their rights.
