It gives me great pleasure to present to you these profile articles featuring a few among other outstanding Cambridge alumni in Hong Kong.
The alumni profiling initiative was launched in the summer of 2005, and the aims envisaged are multiple. Firstly, we believe these profiles will play a part in portraying the Cambridge community in Hong Kong to the general public. Secondly, we hope the graduates' stories will inspire the bright and promising perspective students in Hong Kong to study in Cambridge. Thirdly, it is our wish to strengthen ties within the local Cambridge network by increasing our understanding of one another.
As you read the articles, we hope that not only will you find them enjoyable, but also one or more of our aims will be achieved. While many other alumni may also make interesting or inspiring profiles, we have selected a combination of candidates that cuts across different backgrounds, age groups and professions, in order to present the multi-faceted character of the Cambridge community. In the future, we may feature other alumni to cover readers with different stories.
I should also include a small footnote here regarding the information in brackets following each profile name. This indicates the college attended and the year of matriculation of each featured alumnus/alumna.
I am most grateful to my fellow Editorial Committee members, who have dedicated their time to implementing this profiling initiative. From interviewing alumni, writing the profile articles, to assisting the editing work and making suggestions, each has made valuable contribution to the final product. My comrades are (in alphabetical order): Kitty Chan (Fitzwilliam, 2001), Sunny Chow (New Hall, 1995), Sylvia Lee (St. Edmund's, 2000), Pauleen Ma (Robinson, 2001), Ronald Ma (Sidney Sussex, 1988) and Cindy Wong (Newnham, 2002).
Many thanks go to the featured Cantabrigians, who, despite their busy schedules, agreed to spend time to be interviewed and to give comments on the profile articles. Finally, special thanks to Dr. Dominic Chan (Trinity, 1988), who is the driving force behind the profiling initiative, and has given a lot of assistance to the publication of the profile articles.
Thank you for reading this note, and if you have any comments or suggestions, please do not hesitate to let us know through the Friends of Cambridge University in Hong Kong.
