Favorite BC Memory: There were so many great memories at BC, but I think the best memory came the very last weekend as we looked into the sunrise after staying up all night realizing just how far we have come: from teenagers to young adults, ready to show the world just what we are made of. It was a moment I will never forget realizing that this is the end of one journey and the beginning of another. It was a bittersweet moment. Then my friend almost missed his own graduation by sleeping in, so that was a close second favorite memory!
Why I got involved: Your past shapes you. BC shaped me into the person that I am. I simply want to give back to the community that has given me so much. Ever since I was at BC, I would meet up with people from my city and we would regularly have gatherings to check up on one another and have a bit of fun together. I missed the BC community being in Hong Kong, but then realized just how many Eagles actually live here! I figured I would like to help in creating that BC culture here in Hong Kong, 16 hours away by air from Chestnut Hill!
What are your local favorites in your city?: I am a massive football fan and still play regularly in Hong Kong! The amateur scene is big here, and there are a couple of top quality amateur leagues in the Yau Yee League and Legal League. I have been playing in them since coming back, but recently I have been playing in the HK Football Association leagues. Definitely the local sporting scene is fun and easy to get into! For food: Healthy Chicken!
Fun Fact: I have scored in an official recorded FIFA football match!
