Community Service Exchange
As a medical student, Tracy recognizes the constraints of drugs on mentally ill patients. The wish of helping this underprivileged group in a holistic approach drove her to join the Yale-China Mental Health Community Service Exchange. She also loves to step out of her major and explore more in multiple disciplines: she has served as a demonstrator in a marine science program organized by the Hong Kong Academy of Gifted Education, volunteered at a fund-raising carnival, participated in an organizing committee for a volunteer English teaching trip to rural mainland China, and participated in Meddance. Last year, Tracy worked as an executive officer in Medical Outreachers, where she was given the opportunity to cooperate with various NGOs to arrange medical services in Hong Kong and underdeveloped regions in mainland China. The nature of community service covered was diverse, including volunteer work in palliative care, a visit to a leper colony, assisting in free-of-charge surgery screening, and home visits to children with physical disabilities. All these sparked Tracy’s huge interest in learning about the internal operations of nonprofit organizations. She is excited to drill deeper in that vein by working at Marrakech and New Life this summer. She also very much looks forward to being immersed in the U.S. lifestyle for the very first time.

Vanessa is a third-year student reading law at The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Other than her pursuit of interest in legal issues, she has wide and diverse interests in arts, social sciences, and philosophy. She is enthused about projects concerning promotion of youth education; she is currently working for a social and public organization, Roundtable Community. She is also a registered volunteer at various NGOs, like Oxfam, and regularly commits to assisting with their work. She feels honored to be selected as one of the interns in this program, serving HIV infected patients at Leeway and Red Ribbon Centre. She welcomes possibilities and does not hesitate to seize opportunities to venture and to experience life. She is considering a future in public service, social enterprise, or in media and publishing. For leisure, she enjoys various forms of art, produces art pieces, and takes photos. She is hugely indebted to the Yale-China Association and New Asia College for providing her with so much support and kindness.
