‘I came to Hong Kong with no experience, very little understanding of local culture and a narrow vision of what I wanted to do. I wanted to write; that was all. A few weeks into the course I was out photographing everything I could, attending any protest I could find, and interviewing anyone who would talk. The JMSC inspired me to get out of my comfort zone and really engage with what was going on around me. I thought I’d only want to write about it, but found myself filming, photographing, coding, and discussing my thoughts on every social media platform out there. Above all, the course thrives on bringing together people of all different ages, experience, and from completely different walks of life, and allowing them to bounce off and inspire one another. I learnt as much from my peers as my lecturers.’
