“If I haven’t experienced the memory loss, I would not enter into youth affairs.”


Hong Kong Youth Exchange Promotion United Association Executive Director William Chan experienced the pain of memory loss because of a car accident and thought himself would never have an opportunity to reverse his bad luck. By the support from his family and friends, he understands trauma can be a blessing.


After the incident, Chan lost his nineteen years of memories and knowledge. Facing the adversity, he once wanted to end his life. “During the recovering period, I often cramped, vomited and could not sleep. Sometimes, I even slept for only one hour,” Chan said.


Under the help from people around, Chan re-explored the future. Through Lingnan University’s liberal arts education program, he finally entered the Department of Social Sciences, but the process of admission was also a difficulty.


“Relevant party said the places of Bachelor degree were full and advised me to study associate degree. Buy my dad visited the principal personally and begged an interview chance for me. I thank my father for believing my ability.”


Chan then was actively into social service and voluntary work, hoping to regain his own value. During the academic period, he participated in a lot of service concerning the disadvantaged such as the three-year Service Learning Project in Yunnan.


He subsequently elected as a member of the Steering Committee on the Global Youth Parliament in promoting global exchange between youths.


Having so many opportunities, Chan experienced all kinds of community work around the world, but he sighed, “the sincerity of Hong Kong people to serve the society is not enough and they need to change their attitude.”


“During the service work, Hong Kong people like me would have “almsgiving” attitude. However, a litter boy in Yunnan told me if we visit them, they would be satisfied.” At that time, he understands we should not have this “almsgiving” attitude.
