On Wednesday 14th January afternoon, thanks to the coordination of the Student Affairs Office, Stanley Ho East Asia College had the privilege to invite Mr. Francis Mak, a well-known broadcaster from Hong Kong, as the honorable guest of the Master’s Tea to share with students his lively experiences. Mr. Mak’s radio program ‘My Heart Will Go On’ has been one of the most popular programs in Hong Kong. He also founded ‘Never Give Up Association’ which provides coaching to soul and general education to high school students. Mr. Mak was awarded the Medal of Honour in 2005 and a Bronze Bauhinia Star in 2011 by the HKSAR Government to recognize his dedication in promoting optimistic and positive attitudes in the community.
During the sharing, Mr. Mak expressed that when he grew up, he used to face situations of perplexity like us, but his perseverance always drove him towards achieving his targets. He shared his opinions on many skills with students, including how to deal with an awkward situation during an interview, an appropriate way to hold a microphone, and so on. His humorous style often provoked waves of laughter from the audience. Mr. Mak also conveyed wisdom to students. For example, he described that not only does a presenter need to be mindful to audience taste, to be an excellent presenter, the presenter also helps audience develop a better taste; and we should always act with a clear conscience. His words have indeed enlightened the students a lot.
The Master’s Tea ended with everyone enjoying casual dialogue, delicious refreshment, and group photo-shooting.
