My name is Chan Tak Chun, Damon, currently completed Year-1 of diploma in Architecture in a design insititue in Hong Kong. I obtained the degree of Associate of Arts in Bilingual Communication Studies (French and English) from City University of Hong Kong in July 2014. After the 2 years study, I worked in the Lands Department for Hong Kong Government and the private sector, MTR Corporation Limited for the gap year. After that year of working, I designed to pursue my study in the field of Architecture.

The reason why I would like to continue my study in Architecture is becuase I hope one day I could use the knowledge and ideas which I gain and generate from the study to solve the social problems such as the insufficient housing in Hong Kong or other global issues like the global warming leading the constant rising of water level. The housing situation in Hong Kong nowadays is that there are too many people but with limited lands for building the public housing, resulting the problem of “cage homes” and the inhuman living environment. And one of my biggest goals is to solve this problem and design a comfortable and secure living environment within limited space by the skills and techniques I learn from school and real experiencne.

After completing the first year in Hong Kong , I have received an offer of Bachelor of Architecture from University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom. Studying Architecture in the United Kingdom has been always my dream. I would definitely like to learn from all the related people and academics there. However, due to the limitation of family income and expensive tuition fee charged as international student, my family and me are not capable to fully afford the academic fee. As I am not an UK or European student, I am not eligible to apply the study loan from the UK Government. For the Student Finance Department in Hong Kong, the loan is only entitled for local students studying universities in Hong Kong. For both of the schemes, I am not able to apply. Therefore, I have decided to derfer the offer and come out to work in order to save money for my study. At the same time, I am hereby asking you a favor and see is there any possibility for you to help my continue education.
