Most people paid sympathy to William Chan for losing his memories in car accident when he was young, but William Chan himself took the accident as a granted gift from God. “With such a life-risking experience, I could see there is always someone who gives you strength to live on.” He said.


9 May in 2003, William Chan, Hong Kong Youth Exchange Promotion United Association Executive Director, had a car accident when he rode his bicycle on the way to Examination Centre in England. He was originally managed to attend the examination for University medicine faculty application. With this car accident, his road to become a doctor was ruined.


In the hospital, when he opened his eyes, all he could see was crying strangers standing beside his bed. He was confirmed to have after-accident Amnesia. At the time he was terrified the most, one stranger came up and tapped his shoulder, said “All things are going to be okay, no worry.” That strange is William’s dad, Chan Hung Wai.


William recalled, there were many angels standing beside him in the hard times. The first one should be his father. He gave William sense of security to his future. His father even came to Lingnam University for him and begged the department head for a degree interview chance. “This time I can really see how my family supported me.” William said.


He once wanted to commit suicide. He revealed, “It was hard to imagine the day when you don’t even know you are homosexual or heterosexual.” Luckily, when he originated the suicide thought, his friends, still appearing strangers to him, came and cheered him up immediately.


“I have tried to scold them away, saying “I don’t even know you, why trying to help me now?” He recalled. At last, he was thankful to the friends who were there beside him. Without their help and cheers, William will not be alive anymore.


Having the experiences of being help, William now actively participated in voluntary work. He visited Yunnan rural area children and imprisoned youth. Moreover, He was more willing to lend his ears to others. He equipped himself to be a good listener. “Help actualizing others is real success.” William said.

[When and where did he speak?]

[Your introduction is well written, but somewhat unclear about the thrust of your article. Is it about how the accident happened? What Chan did afterwards? Why God protected Chan? Try to add more detail to the lead paragraph so that the reader knows, roughly, what to expect.]
