"Challenges make one stronger and be grateful"

Video Story: https://youtu.be/fZo0f-2t7_0

Raine自17歲起就希望自力更生,自己承擔起生活及學業的開支。就讀大學期間,父親不幸罹患癌症,Raine更加奮發讀書贏得多個獎學金,既緩解雪上加霜的財政狀況,更找到自己對海洋生態及氣候的興趣。一級榮譽畢業後,Raine成為一位老師,希望延續受恩施恩的精神。

Growing up as a maltreated child was not the only challenge that Raine Chong had to overcome, she faced the tremendous financial difficulties when her father was diagnosed with cancer during her undergraduate studies. With her determination and resilience, she managed to achieve outstanding academic results and graduated with first-class honour.

Raine received a total of nine scholarships during her university studies, including the Mak Pak Chiu Mak Soo Lai Hing Memorial Scholarships 2017-2018 and the Chin Ping-Chuen Memorial Scholarship in Earth Sciences 2017-2018. She is grateful and reminisces how all the scholarships alleviated her financial burden and supported her studies.

“I am proud that I can offer some help to the community and motivate students to get into university. I am so touched when I got the thank-you letters from my students and I would like to do the same to the generous donors who helped me”, said Raine, now a secondary school Science teacher. She finds a sense of obligation within her to give back to the society. Raine is dedicating herself to various philanthropic endeavors, including volunteering at local charity, rescuing stray cats and using her expertise to develop an AR tool for education.
