Mr. Chan, he is one of the ordinary undergraduate in HKBU. He also has different worries like other classmates, worried about GPA, the work within the University interest club, dating girls.
studying in university was out of reach in the past for Mr. Chan, He made a lot of effort to struggle for the achievement nowadays.
Chan was not a devoted student when he was in secondary school. He like playing football and cooking. As a result He only got 5 marks out of 30 in the HKCEE. He started to work outside. As he was interested in cooking, He applied jobs in this field. He worked as a junior chef and worked from day to night. During this period, he found out that he doesn’t equip himself enough. He could nit grip chances easily. Finally he applied IVE for devoting in being a chef.
He worked about 16 hours per day. It was really harsh for him at that time since he knew nothing in being a chief.
When he graduated from IVE, He started to work as a professional chef. He tried his best to do the job. His hardworking was not in vain. He was appreciated by his boss. At the same time he was thinking of another problem- Language. Since Chan only graduated from F.5 and learned cooking skill in the IVE, he knew that if he wanted to improve himself, he was harder and harder. He quit his job again and started studying in the associate degree program.
He wanted to equip himself because he remembered few years ago, a customer ordered a dishes in English. He only can guest half of the meaning. And most of the professional cooking books were written in English, if he want to improve himself, studying again was the only way.
Amazingly, he devoted so much time in studying. He was revising from day to night. He felt that he has a little different. In the end of semester, he even got the scholarship and grip the chances in studying in HKBU.
He study almost 8 hrs to 9 hr each days. It was quite relax compared with working. He thought he can get more and more satisfaction when studying. Since he doesn’t get any A in the past. He realized that more time he paid, more reward he can get.
Although Chan has used a lot of time in figuring how he should do in the future, Chan doesn’t think that he was wasting time. He think it is a good chances for him to recognize his dream and achieve it. He is now studying in HKBU and fighting for his dream. His personal experience told us effort won’t be wasted.
