Working at AmCham amidst the fast-changing socio-political environment in Hong Kong is an invaluable experience. Through conducting various research on the latest policies such as the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act and National Security Law, I gained so much insight on how US-Hong Kong relations would affect the international business community. AmCham provided me the opportunity to meet different important business professionals, which expanded my knowledge of the field and prepared me to work in the transnational and culturally diverse world.

Working as an intern in AmCham HK is definitely a life-changing experience! Not only I have gained new knowledge related to my academic studies (i.e. American Studies), but also acquired hands-on experience beyond the textbook.

Being a Women Of Influence Committee Intern has allowed me to meet so many impactful women, who are (for a lack of better words) amazing at what they do — both professionally and within the larger community. Through managing and writing nominations, I have been able to develop my interpersonal skills, as well as gain invaluable insight into the advancement of gender equality in the workplace and beyond. My gratitude to everyone who has helped me in the process — thank you all for making my experience such a memorable one! I couldn't have asked for a more meaningful initiative to contribute to.
