    A will to overcome adversity

    Cusson Lee has suffered from muscular dystrophy since he was a child. Now he can only move his index fingers slightly to control a mouse. Yet, through his perseverance, he managed to graduate from the OUHK with a Bachelor of Science with Honours in Computing in 2011.

    During his studies, Cusson's mother had to accompany him to school every day and take class notes for him. She even had to raise her hand for Cusson if he did not understand something in class.

    For his graduation project, Cusson decided to build a robot. In addition to the challenge inherent in building the robot, Cusson faced an additional difficulty in communicating with his mother on how to work things out. Because the project involved a virtual interface on the computer, Cusson needed his mother to help him assemble the components so that the programme he wrote could be used to drive the robot. By sharing his technical knowledge with his mother during the production process and, most importantly, gaining her support, Cusson eventually passed the course with flying colours.

    Through his studies, Cusson acquired an in-depth knowledge of computing theories, algorithms and programming. Looking back at his years of hard work with the OUHK, he and his mother definitely shared a lot of positive memories. At the time of his graduation, Cusson said with a smile, 'I am so happy. This really has not been easy for me. I hope that I can become an inspiration for others as well.' He also thanked Dr Andrew Lui, the Programme Team Leader, for offering assistance and support like arranging a room for him to take rest between lessons. Cusson says that his optimism and Christian faith were the driving forces behind his years of hard work.

    Now, following his graduation, Cusson has joined a social enterprise set up by a church. His main work is designing patterns for household goods. Outside of his work, he has also been invited to speak to prison inmates and other groups of people about his life experiences, and in September he was awarded as one of the Top Ten Regeneration Warriors. Now that he has completed his studies at the OUHK, Cusson plans to study theology in his quest to practice lifelong learning, thereby becoming a warrior for his faith as well.
