The 2018 Opportunity Festival certainly lived up to its name. The event, held at Lok Sin Tong Yu Kan Hing Secondary School last Sunday, gave students the chance to learn more about alternative careers.

A collaboration between the US Consulate, Asia Society, America Chamber of Commerce and Hong Kong’s OWN Academy, the festival included hands-on workshops hosted by companies such as Tesla, SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design), and Reuters, to encourage innovation and creativity among students. Here’s what most impressed SCMP's junior reporters Joy, Rachel and Nicholas.
