APRU Undergraduate Leaders’ Program 2019 has been held from 9-19 July 2019 in the University of Sydney, with the theme "Leadership for Good: Forging a Vision and Changing Lives for the Better". Three CUHK students, Ms. NG Yui Ming (major in Social Work), Ms. LI Pui Kwan Cindy (major in Integrated BBA) and Mr. YING Yau Kit Stanley (major in Systems Engineering and Engineering Management) represented CUHK and participated in the program.

This year program includes various topics ranging from aboriginal history of Australia, to design thinking to cultural competent leadership and ethical decisions. Students are involved in a series of workshopss, group discussions, presentations, field trips and so forth. Please see the video summary here and their 10-day experiences below!


Stanley (second from the left): The cultural and language differences presented little challenges for us to cultivate our friendships. There were occasions when we had different opinions. Yet, we compromised and sought for the best way out, and that was exactly where leadership came in useful.


 NG Yui Ming

Yui Ming (right-most): We went to the Botanic Garden in Sydney and listened to an aboriginal man’s introductions of different weapons they used in the past. Being acknowledged with the aboriginal culture, I had deep reflection on the problem on inequality and discrimination.



Cindy (middle): The importance of being a cultural competence leader is that we need to accept others’ cultures and collaborate to make changes together in an aim to forge a better life.
