[Together we walk through this – More than hiking!] Hiking is not only an outdoor activity for AYPers. Mr. Chan Hing Ho (Ho), with multiple roles including Gold Award Holder, existing AYP expeditions instructor (Hiking & Kayak) and ex-Outward Bound Hong Kong instructor, fully understands the true meaning of hiking. “It’s no doubt that hills and countryside are being polluted harmfully recently. Therefore I decide to clean-up rubbish in some hiking routes with my family and friends as well as influencing my children not to stop learning even class has been suspended, teaching them not to pollute the nature, being environmental-friendly as a responsible hiker.” As AYP expeditions instructor, instead of limiting his mission to provide expeditions guidance for participants in the countryside, on waterways or at the sea, Ho is also being a role model for all of us.

[Together we walk through this – Fly with a Smile!] “As a flight attendant, we are in great danger to get infected. However, I have never bumped up a thought of stop flying. My mission in this global challenge is to provide professional service to every passenger in their journey, giving them a comfortable in-flight experience.” Apart from frontline carers, crew members have to suffer great danger when serving Hong Kong residents to return back by flying with flights arranged by the government. Please listen to Cynthia’s advice, who is a Silver Award Holder and one of the crew members of Cathay Pacific, stay at home and let’s see each other later on the plane and travel safely soon after immigration restrictions have been lifted!

Let’s see the story of AYP Gold Award Holder, member of Civil Aid Service, Jason Pang. “I have been working in different quarantine centres include Lady MacLehose Holiday Village, Lei Yue Mun Park, Po Leung Kuk Pak Tam Chung Holiday Camp and Chun Yeung Estate, with different responsibilities and duties assigned such as registration, sending on and off, distribution of means and daily necessities as well. I have to deal with different people in the working process, which I must credited to my AYP journey, which makes everything smoother and easier. Compared with my hiking experiences accumulated in Expeditions Section, wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) to handle different work becomes a challenge, and this also motivates me to stay strong in every difficult occasions.” Let’s be safe and remain all the anti-virus measures to tackle COVID-19…

Teachers and parents can finally be relieved upon the confirmation of class resumption announced by the government. Take a look of Gold Award Holder, college teacher, Michael on how to behave well in this challenging period. “I was inspired by my AYP journey on how to be a responsible leader and teacher, act as a role model for my students.
