    Student5Language student chosen for International Youth Exchange Programme

    Melody Lee Wing-tung, from the School of Education and Languages, was selected to join the International Youth Exchange Programme 2012-13. She was among 15 successful candidates chosen for their outstanding academic results and impressive records of community service to visit Kagoshima, Japan between 16 and 23 August.

    Co-organized by the Home Affairs Bureau and the Commission on Youth, the programme offered homestays, visits and a variety of cultural and educational exchanges. Melody treasured the opportunity to travel on an exchange trip in her last year of study and the rare experience to live with a local family. She said, 'During the tour, there were two particularly unforgettable moments. First, the news team of a local television station interviewed us. Second, in a question-and-answer session during our visit to the Deputy County Chief's office, I had the courage to ask him his views on the Diaoyu Islands dispute between China and Japan.'

    With her experience from the tour, Melody encourages OUHK students to work hard and not give up if they are misunderstood or encounter biases. She believes everyone can achieve great things if they do their best.
