SIFE broaden my eyes, changed my attitude to work, and made me more self-confident. SIFE is my best teacher. SIFE helped me a lot in the process being a business man. Whe I joined SIFE in 2004, I was a junior university student without any social experience. My SIFE experience taught me how to communicate, how to think over, how to solve problems, how to manage a project, how to cooperate and how to work independently. My largest acheivement in SIFE was not winning the national champion but the social relations I built and the way to do business I learned. My SIFE experience gave me a strong supporting in my career, I did not feel very unfamiliar with the work when I started my current work. I love SIFE!

“Being an entrepreneur, to start everything from scratch, is no way an easy task.” I have heard of this for so many times from those brilliant entrepreneurs; yet the feeling appealed to me only after I started off SIFE team in my university, HKUST. SIFE experience has built up my entrepreneurship and problem solving skills. This shapes me to be a good candidate for many global recruiters.

After two years’ participation in SIFE, what I attained is just like the slogan of SIFE: Ahead for business, a heart for the world. Through communicating with the disadvantaged, I got the access to deeply understand their living environment as well as their demands. Also, by applying my knowledge on economics to the undertaking of the projects, I managed to help some people improve living standard, which was great accomplishment for me. After all those activities, I felt for myself as part of the society, as a college student, I should contribute to the society while enjoying the advantages it offered to me.

The reason to establish the SIFE team in the university is very simple: just to open a window which can let the students see very different but beautiful scenery through. But during over one-year being a SIFEr, I’ve found that SIFE was more than a window. SIFE is a kind of bridge, it let the students go outside to concern about the society, to help the communities, to change people and their life, including the students themselves; and at the same moment, it let more people outside of school know more about these excellent students and the incredible things they’ve done for their communities. As a SIFEr, I improved myself a lot during this SIFE process, and what SIFE teaches me is: help people, help yourself!

Though I have been leaders of various school associations and clubs during my graduate years, SIFE, without doubt, has played a rather crucial and vital role in shaping me and improving my skills. SIFE is an independent association, which makes me more and more mature and responsible; it also offers me a broader and wider flat for me to communicate and cooperate with people outside the college, which enriches my view a lot; the most important and significant thing is that here I get to know a group of people who share the same interests and ideals with me and make my life full of happiness and enthusiasm.
