A Winding Road to a Satisfying Career
A few years ago, Aleck Kwong (BSc in Quantitative Finance 2008), who scored 10 A’s on his HKCEE, was living his dream. Or so he thought. After completing a degree at CUHK and working hard to get a job in the finance sector, he couldn’t help but feel as though something was missing from his life. At the same time, he found himself drawn to expressive arts therapy, which helps people with conditions like autism, PTSD and depression find healing through creativity. Eventually, he became a registered expressive arts therapist and now finds great satisfaction in helping others through his work. Read more here, or click here to view Aleck’s inspiring video.
