CHAN, Mei Kei Maggie
Peer Mentor Awardee (2019-20)
BBA IS, Year 2
The true essence of peer mentoring is to grow together. We provide tailor-made advices and help for mentees to excel their university life. On the other side, peer mentees provided precious opportunities for us to interact with more people and boosted our confidence. This is a unique journey which everyone of us learnt a lot. I wish my mentees could join the Peer Mentoring Programme next year to continue the legacy and pass it on.

BBA OM, Year 2
It is not an easy task for the first-year students to adjust to university life – this is why the peer mentors are here to help. We provide mental support and academic advices to our mentees, so that they could decide their pathway and plan ahead. As a mentor, I hope that my mentees would also volunteer to be the next batch of mentors to carry on this tradition and culture.
