Hello, it’s Stephanie here, a university student born and raised in Hong Kong.
As a geography student, I have always been fond of travelling to explore different cultures and landscapes. People always find the outside world more intriguing than the environment that they are used to, and usually lose their ability to appreciate and look into their everyday-settings in detail, I was one of them.
Things changed radically in 2019 when I was able to travel to a number of continents and met people from different countries. Through the invaluable cultural exchange with friends around the globe, except from learning so much about their history and folks, I was amazed by how many people were so curious about the things and situation in Hong Kong. I started to look back at my city deeply from another point of view and became eager to tell others stories of Hong Kong. I realized that one profound meaning of travel is to be more aware of and attached to one’s identity and embrace one’s birthplace more.
Here I am more than happy to share more stories of my hometown with all of you.
