TUNG Kam Chuen

Studying mathematics in CUHK was humbling, yet enriching. Here, I met peers who seem to know infinitely more than I do; postgraduate students who understand mathematical jargon at ease; professors who are friendly and always eager to help. Every day, I learnt something from people in this intelligent community.
