Meet The Team
As a team of mainly Hong Kong students, we realised that there is an abundance of talented students in Hong Kong who have never even considered pursuing overseas higher education opportunities. Whether this be due to a lack of resources, financial support, or even confidence, we believe that students with great potential should not be prevented from reaching their dream universities around the world, merely because of their socioeconomic background.
