For more than a decade, she witnessed the ups and downs after the subprime mortgage crisis in 2007.  Starting her career with investment banking, she shifted to hedge fund and then moved higher up the ladder from analyst to investment officer.

Alumna Mio has frequently participated as invited guest speaker for different investment conferences “Soft Skills” Matters in This Era Facing the rapidly changing business world, it is difficult to stand out in the workplace merely with specialist knowledge. “Soft skills” like communication, problem solving, having an all-rounded-vision, as well as leadership and teamwork spirit are just as important.

    Looking Beyond the Camera as a Social Observer – Interview with Alumnus Tang Kuok Hou

    Alumnus Tang Kuok Hou (Class of 2015, BSocSc. in Sociology) Art practitioner Nominee of the 2018 Macau Annual Art Exhibition & the recipient of the 2017 Orient Foundation Art Award Capturing every moment of daily life becomes part of the routine for this generation. When pressing the shutter, everyone can turn into a photographer. However, for alumnus Tang Kuok Hou, photography means much more than that. Through observing the society, he uses his lens to discover and display the overlooked feelings and concerns of the city, which evokes the audience’s sympathy and self-reflection. He works more like a social observer rather than simply a photographer. Do What You Love to Do Alumnus Tang has been interested in taking photos since he was a child. He was admitted to the Department of Digital Media Design in Taiwan after completing high school. However, he left Taiwan and returned to Macao to pursue a degree in the Department of Sociology at UM when he realized that design was not his desired career. This was how he started his journey both in photography and in sociology. “When I was a freshman, I worked as a part-time artist’s assistant at the Macau Museum of Art. Besides reaching out to artists from different countries, I also learnt some creative techniques and ways of thinking from them. Once I got a chance to participate in the Macau Annual Visual Arts Exhibition organized by the Cultural Affairs Bureau and I was so lucky to be selected as one of the ‘Top Ten Entries.’ Later, I was arranged by the Cultural Affairs Bureau to host an exhibition in Portugal as a new photography talent.” Alumnus Tang felt very surprised to win this award, which inspired him to be more determined to move forward with photography as a career.
