Being part of the “Life Buddies” program, Vega has invited Mr. Jacky Lau, Vice-President of the French Alumni Association and a well-known artist in Hong Kong, to share his art journey and his philosophy of life with student mentees from Cotton Spinners Association Secondary School on 10th April 2017.
During the workshop, Mr. Lau shared his life of study in France and his struggle history from a mediocre student to a famous artist in the world. He encourages the students to work hard and pursue their dream persistently in order to make their dreams come true, even though they are not well equipped enough at present stage. Student mentees expressed their gratitude to Mr. Lau and took a group photo together at the end of the workshop.
