Sabrina WONG

I am a Year 5 medical student studying in the HKU. Human rights and public health issues are my field of interest. Rejecting the academic philosophy of our society forcing us to be defined by a specific title or a particular field of knowledge, I consider myself to be the jack of all trades but master of none - I aspire to be a luster for life, an ambitious addict and an amateur humanitarian worker. Empathy, humanity and equality are values that I treasure dearly. To me, life is a never ending piece of art as a learner, and also as a change maker. Being able to see through injustices and wrongdoings of the system is not enough, creating new possibilities and making the world a more bearable place to live in is, I believe, our true moral responsibility as human beings and this is what I am constantly learning and what I am striving hard to achieve.
