Description

HONG KONG: Hong Kong-based education innovation company OWN Academy is hosting its second annual future fair for students and parents on Sunday 22 October 2017 at Renaissance College in Ma On Shan. The OWN Future Fair presents an opportunity for secondary school students to learn about careers they are interested in, and explore new ones they might be unfamiliar with.

The Fair will feature a student speaker series, where over 40 inspiring young individuals in different fields of work will share their own experiences and provide tips for students looking to carve their own path. Some of the speakers will be hosting experiences and workshops on the day, a film festival screening will also be available.

Besides focusing on the students, there will be a parent speaker series, aimed at increasing parents' awareness and support for student’s future career choices.

It’s not something you can learn in the classroom. OWN Future Fair is one of the best ways we’ve found to get that message across.”
