Rachel Wong

Speech and Hearing Sciences, HKU



Rachel is a Speech and Hearing Sciences student at The University of Hong Kong. With a strong belief in empowering the underprivileged, she takes part in different voluntary services in a bid to help unleash their potential. As a child-lover, she tutors hearing-impaired children, as well as secondary school students with visual impairment every week.

Embracing the identity of a global citizen and hoping to make an impact in the world, she went on voluntary teaching trips and home visits in rural China and took part in a social project for people with Down Syndrome in Norway. Apart from that, she volunteers for both local and international NGOs such as Soap Cycling and Crossroads Foundation. These experiences broaden her horizons on global issues and what can be further done for the less resourceful in Hong Kong.

As a speech therapist to-be, she hopes to use her expertise to enable her clients to express themselves and communicate with others effectively. They are also a part of society and are capable of contributing as we all do. She aspires to contribute to building an ideal society in which everyone is respected and valued for who they are.
