PROFILE PICTURE

BIO

Yiu Pui Ying, Joanne is a second-year student in The Hong Kong Polytechnic University’s Tourism and Events Management programme. From South Africa, she has a keen interest in travel, phone photography, and outdoor activities such as hiking and kayaking. She is active in PolyU’s leadership and international student clubs, and enjoys keeping a reflective journal to capture her various experiences.

REFLECTION

Growing up in South Africa, I have always held an interest in wildlife, while studying in ELC-1014, Advanced English for University Studies, allowed me to select an original and unique topic. With this in mind, I began researching issues related to wildlife and came across the discussions of communal conservancies, an unfamiliar issue to me. A challenge when writing the essay was finding credible and updated sources to support my arguments for this specific topic. Together with Inscribe, I was able to appreciate my own ideas, whilst learning how to edit my work to become more coherent and concise.
