2016 - 2017 Board
"New York city, as they say is the land of freedom and opportunity, but it's also a big city that one can easily get lost in. HKSSS gives me the sense of belonging that I need, it is the family in which I am comfortable sharing my both my successes and failures."
"The HKSSS family are the siblings I never had; they taught me to grow up from an awkward freshman into a slightly less awkward sophomore, of course without too much teasing in the process!"
"I inevitably found myself homesick my first semester of my freshman year, and was able to find a family in HKSSS. Despite the fact that most members have some connection to Hong Kong, I've been able to meet so many cool, exciting people with different interests and personalities."
"To me HKSSS is a club where hobbies are discussed, laughters are shared and friendships are made. Our group shouldn't be interpreted as only a regional club as people of different backgrounds and interests are more than welcomed to join, much like the city itself."
"Even though my dad is from Hong Kong, I always felt out of touch with my cultural heritage growing up in suburban New Jersey. Joining HKSSS has allowed me to reconnect with this heritage while making some of the best friends I’ve met at Columbia."
This could be you!
