Building Resilience Small-Scale Rural Infrastructure

Returned to Timor-Leste in mid-April, I started my 4 months commitment as a communication officer for the UNDP SSRI Project. The reason I choose to return is because I can see my contribution/the contribution of UNDP in this country which is something more significant than working in my hometown. Since I am the only communication person in the Project, I have lots of works and in the midst encounter much difficulty, giving me the most stressful time of work. However, I am really proud of the Project and it’s my pleasure to leave some legacy for this closing Project.

First Exposure to Timor-Leste as a UNV

Through a pilot university programme collaborated by HK government and United Nations Volunteers, it’s my great pleasure and honour to participate as a UNV in Timor-Leste. During six months from July 2016-Jan 2017, being a communication support officer in communication and management support unit in UNDP gave me a brand new experience and opportunity working in overseas, in developing country, in UN system, and in the field of communication. I mainly helped manage the UNDP Timor-Leste media, support different units and projects, and media coverage in events and field. Living in Timor-Leste is also a life-growing experience for me to expose to distinct culture, lifestyle and nature.

Hong Kong’s 30-year relationship with Madonna: it’s complicated

20160217_madonna1http://www.scmp.com/lifestyle/music/article/1913616/hong-kongs-30-year-relationship-madonna-its-complicated

My last story during intern on SCMP. I had been working on it for more than a week-reading the tiny microfiches and searching for her life stories. In fact, it’s strange to act like a big fan chasing for this superstar. I really wonder how a famous person lives. Madonna inspires me to pursue what you want and love. She makes it successfully!

Already get back school, enjoying my last and busy study.
