"Studying at HKUST nurtured me to think strategically and logically to make a business work. Throughout my university life, I also worked in teams on a variety of projects that groomed me to be a leader as well as a team player at my company now. Of course, I made a lot of good friends in HKUST who are excelling in different fields - these connections are priceless. All have shaped me into who I am now," she elaborates.
