Ashleigh MA (GCS) Ashleigh is deeply honoured and thrilled to have had the privilege of representing Hong Kong in the 400 Metres Hurdles event at the FISU World University Games, which took place in Chengdu, China. Participating in this international competition was an exhilarating experience that broadened her horizons. It was her rst foray into a global sporting event, and she relished the opportunity to compete against skilled athletes from different countries. Remarkably, she achieved her seasonal best time of 61.77 seconds for the event. However, this enriching experience also highlighted areas where she can continue to grow and re ne her skills before advancing to the next level of training and competition. Anson WONG (GCS) Anson feels extremely honoured and grateful for being awarded the Tin Ka Ping Scholarship (Arts), HKUST 2022/23, especially considering the challenges that come with pursuing music performance as a non-music major. It requires countless hours of practice and balancing academic responsibilities with musical aspirations can be quite daunting. This scholarship is a recognition of her hard work and dedication towards her dream. She would like to express her heartfelt gratitude to the selection committee for choosing her as the recipient. This recognition has given her the motivation to further pursue her passion and enhance her skills in music performance. STUDENTS’ ACCOMPLISHMENTS 11
