Our Journey

Check out the growth of our multicultural youth leaders.

Helen

When we came back to Hong Kong from Singapore, we met for the sharing session. We were required to think of something to share with each other. At that time, I suddenly came up with this: In a team, it is not necessary that everyone should be a leader, sometimes teamwork is more important than leadership. Yes, that’s what we learned in Stage 1&2. Everyone has their position in a team, but when a position is overlapped, why couldn’t we changed our position in order to build a team.

Yvette

Through different games and activities, I have slowly opened up to people and understood that you must take a step forward and make the effort to get to know someone.This reflects how we must also be the one to take the initiative when it comes to overcoming the barrier of language and race in order to construct a multicultural society.

Blossom Journey

I could still remember the very first friend I met there who is a Pakistani. On the first day of training, I was in a panic as I did not know where was I supposed to have my lunch, but then, she came to me and asked if I would like to try Pakistani food and eat with her... I felt like she was my savior, and surely, I went with her. I was so new to that kind of food that I could not even order the food by myself. She recommended a few dishes she wanted me to try and ordered everything for me.We talked, we laughed, we had fun. It was a really nice experience eating with her, trying new food, learning about culture more thoroughly. I was astonished by how nice those people of different ethnicities are.

Our Actions

We continue to work together with people from different cultural backgrounds and sectors, to achieve a more multi-culture and inclusive society.
