What will you do if you lose all your memory? What will you do if you don’t recognize your parents? What will you do if you even forget about yourself? People may think that it’s the end of one’s life, but William Chan, to whom all of this happened, said “It was a beginning of my life.”


A car accident in England ruined William’s life. William used to be a brilliant student who got full marks in Hong Kong Certificate of Education Examination. With only one step left, he would be a medical student in Cambridge University. However, this car accident snatched away all his memory. In the worst time, William didn’t even know how to spell “apple” or add. “I am so lucky that I have lots of people helping around me,” said William. He forgets about anything in his first 19 years. When he was so desperate that he wanted to suicide, his friend phoned him and told him not to be cranky. When he was refused by Lingnan University to be an undergraduate, his father knocked on the principal’s door and asked for an interview. “When I saw many people tried to help me, I said to myself that I cannot give up.”


“I used to be arrogant and a slave for achievements, this accident made me perceived many things I have missed before, so I started to care about others’ life like teenagers and the elderly.” After his accident, he came back to Hong Kong in 2003 in which ((SARA)) stroked(look up meaning of this verb, completely different from stuck) Hong Kong. When William saw Hong Kong’s situation, he found that there were lots of people (x) need help. Therefore, besides starting to do voluntary work, he established the Hong Kong Youth Exchange Promotion United Association after William graduated from his Doctorate degree. “I found my life-long mission now, the most successful person is not defined by amount of assets, actually it is to help others to achieve their best in life.” William thinks that teenagers are the master for the future, so his NGO is to help them to find their dreams and interests in order to have a better life.


William is so grateful that he is still alive to help others. “The passions of teenagers infect me to do better and achieve more.” William thinks that teenagers should not be afraid of facing troubles because this is not the destination of their life. Just like him, William met a really big trouble that others would not have, but, he never gives up. If you can sustain and pass the trouble, you will be succeed at one time. --095105 2011年11月29日 (二) 20:12 (UTC)

The story of William's life is very complete, however it feels rushed, and the news angle/main message is lost in the sea of descriptions about William's life. Choose your focus, such as the title, and make it more specific so the reader knows where the story is headed.
