Vincent Chiu (Chairman SJCAA)
Dr. Eric Chong (Master SJC)
I am a St. Johnian, having been at St. John’s College first as a student and then later as a tutor. Throughout my professional career, I loved to overcome the challenges in crossing boundaries. In academics, I view crossing functional boundaries as a challenge. I want to share with you the journey and lessons in crossing boundaries. In a world of increasing globalization and inter-disciplinary advances, I believe we all should strive for crossing challenging boundaries, whatever they may be.
