She served as a student ambassador, and she also has several outstanding sporting achievements to her name. Nicole was the captain of the HKBU swimming team for four consecutive years, and she led the team to participate in training sessions and different competitions.    Nicole started swimming training when she was a child, and as a result, she was familiar with the daily routine of intensive training in the early mornings before heading to campus for her classes. She said that apart from improving her physical fitness, sport has also helped her develop a positive and persevering attitude. Nicole is grateful for the opportunities and trust that she received during her studies at HKBU. She has now been hired as a secondary school physical education teacher, and she is determined to help her students nurture their own talents.   Nearly 100 tertiary students from different institutions competed for the Outstanding Tertiary Student of Hong Kong award, which was organised for the first time this year. Candidates had to go through two rounds of interviews and a public vote. Ten winners were then selected by the organiser. The event aims to discover, praise and nurture tertiary students with potential who care about society and show concern for the future development of the Greater Bay Area. It also promotes whole-person development and heightens the students’ sense of national identity.
