An Empathetic Heart, An Experience of a Lifetime

What would you bring on a trip? Passport, tickets, clothes, smartphone. Of course, local currencies and guide books.

Ms. Jenny Ching Yee TUNG (CBS) joined a Hangzhou Service-Learning course and served a local school for the children of rural migrant workers in the summer of 2018. You know, she could only pack light to hit the road: a few pieces of clothes, bare daily essentials, and an empathetic heart.

What she didn't expect was the full loading on her return trip: an experience that will benefit her life onwards.
