Not many people can return to a normal life after having amnesia but William Chan is the very rare exception. He does not just overcome the effects brought by amnesia, he even lives a prosperous life. He is now the Executive Director of Hong Kong Youth Exchange Promotion United Association. William was invited to the general assembly of Journalism and Communication Department at Hong Kong Shue Yan University, to share his story.


Due to a traffic accident in 2003, William Chan lost the memory of 19 years. The after-effects of amnesia continued - dizziness, vomiting, insomnia etc. He did not have a good sleep for half a year. Before having the amnesia, he was an outstanding student with excellent results. His dream was to be a doctor but the accident changed his dream and his life. Chan did not complain for his misfortunate, instead he treated all these as a gift of God. Because of no past memory, his head could be clearer and fresher. God has never abandoned him but kept blessing him. With the guide of God, he soon clearly knew his path in the future at the end. He chose to devote himself in social work. He aims to help as many as young people he can. ((great))


Sea urchin-like Young People

William described young people in Hong Kong nowadays as sea urchins. When against outsiders, it will put a thorn, fierce attitude, but in fact the heart is very vulnerable, especially young people interested in politics. “Government officials tend to ignore young people’s views, coupled with sea urchin-like character of young people, creating the recent rude political culture,” Chan said. He felt that officials should listen more to the views of young people as they are passionate and care for social issues, and willing to stand up and voice. ((great structure and format...very nice article))
