I had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects ranging from research on Fugitive Offenders Ordinance as well as the Guangdong-Hong Kong- Macau Greater Bay Area. My duties have allowed me to not only see a clear path forward but to appreciate the experiences in AmCham which has made this internship much more memorable. Once again, thank you AmCham for a terrific internship opportunity."

"Beginning my internship during the escalation of U.S. - China trade tensions and in the midst of the extradition bill debate, I was provided the opportunity to engage first-hand with the issues that were being covered on the front page of the news. In one month, I crafted talking points for our upcoming D.C. advocacy trip, researched the conflicting perspectives regarding the Fugitives Offenders Ordinance and sat in on meetings with U.S. congressional staffers. AmCham allowed me to better understand Hong Kong's growing role in Asia Pacific; it is the optimal place for anyone seeking opportunities in international affairs."
