Comment of Dr. Kenneth Wong

Being one of the recipients of the Best Teacher Awards is a great honor; this award recognizes my effort and energy spending in past years, but most importantly is my teaching philosophy. Frankly, I still can’t believe that I’m now working as an Assistant Professor, neither do my friends. However, it was such an amazing arrangement that I was “guided” back to The University of Hong Kong and I’m really grateful to be here. I strongly believe I have a mission in the campus, although not a high sounding one, to transform at least some students that I’ll come across by sharing with them my experience and enlightening them in some ways. That probably is my philosophy of purpose-driven life.
