  • 香港中文大學翻譯系三年級

回首過去兩三年,放榜後那段無助徬徨的日子雖然仍是歷歷在目,但不及接獲夢想學系取錄信時的喜悅那麼令人難以忘懷,更比不上於學院那兩年遇到的那般刻骨銘心。
猶記得剛進入學院時總會禁不住自慚形穢,甚至有「低人一等」的感覺,只盼能趕緊離開這個地方-萬沒想到,這份厭惡卻會轉化成不捨。原以為這兩年只能獨自努力,沒想到在此認識了會為我打氣的同學、盡心提攜栽培的講師,更有互相勉勵的朋友。有了這些,今天的我方能步進大學的大門。
邁向夢想的路難免崎嶇,可當有一群戰友、老師於路上伴你同行,一切艱辛都不足為懼。

  • 香港中文大學歷史系三年級

由一個「失敗」的理科人轉化成一個「成功」的文科人,過程絕不容易;由不獲任何大學取錄到取得多間大學取錄,苦盡甘來的感覺很奇妙。現在我就讀香港中文大學歷史系三年級,有機會感受大學的文化,「上莊」、「DEM BEAT」、玩「院慶」等,這些改變都是有賴港大附屬學院 (CC) 對我的幫助。
當時文憑試慘遭滑鐵盧,我十分迷惘,之後毅然報讀CC的文學副學士課程。除文科的課程外,我還有機會學習其他範疇的知識,例如社會學、心理學、語言學等。此外,過程中身邊有着一班「戰友」,大家緊密合作解決難題,這些磨練、經驗,都十分難能可貴,在大學甚至將來投身社會亦能運用。
很肯定的說,在CC,付出和收穫是成正比的,非常感謝講師對我的栽培,同學對我的幫助,使我更珍惜身邊的一切,助我全面地成長。
最後想向各位分享我的座右銘:「忘記背後,努力面前,向着標竿直跑」,希望大家一起努力向着目標邁進!
