 > We shine because of our students’ achievements. Join us in congratulating Miss Connie WONG Sze Lam, a year-four student of our BSc (Hons) in Property Management Programme who received the Innovation and Technology Scholarship from Mr John LEE, the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region at the Award Presentation Ceremony. Jointly organized by the Innovation and Technology Commission, HSBC and The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, the Innovation and Technology Scholarship aims to nurture outstanding students to contribute to the InnoTech Industry and recognize their creativity and passion towards this aspect. Connie is very honoured to have been selected as one of the recipients of the Innovation and Technology Scholarship. She wishes to thank the organisers for organising this meaningful scholarship to encourage students to contribute to the InnoTech Industry. Moreover, she would like to express her heartfelt gratitude to BRE, especially to Prof. Eddie HUI and Ms Hebe HOW, for the invaluable support along the way. Receiving this scholarship has not only helped affirm her passion for engaging in the InnoTech sector, but also motivated her to strive for further improvement and excellence. Connie says, “It feels great to have received this scholarship, but in the scheme of things, it is of little importance, when compared to the mission it places upon its recipients – to promote the development of Innovation and Technology in Hong Kong. I am looking forward to collaborating with other passionate youths and leaders to build a better Hong Kong with our innovative ideas!” Connie, keep up the good work!
