HKPolyU E-Newsletter Issue 69 - March 2015
TED, a nonprofit platform devoted to organizing short and powerful talks, has its first ever event staged at PolyU this March. Under the TEDxHKPolyU programme, a group of PolyU students organized the talk featuring three speakers who shared their inspiring experiences.
Among the speakers was PolyU design student, Kade Chan, who talked about his amazing journey in pursuing origami. Having created over a hundred origami designs and winning international awards, Kade is the first Chinese who is awarded the prestigious Yoshino Issei Fund from the Japan Origami Academic Society. Also, another student from the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences, Leo Ho Cheuk-yin, shared the beauty of harmonica music. This emerging chromatic harmonicist has won 17 international championships since 2006.
