Awe-inspiring chats

Nick Vujicic is back in Hong Kong this month. The famous motivational speaker was born without arms and legs, but he did not let that get in the way of his happiness and ambitions.

As part of his visit, the PMA Music Foundation will present a seminar on December 18 and a walkathon on the following day. After Vujicic's talk on how to dream big, Life Without Limbs will hold a 500-word essay contest. Young Post will publish the winning essay. Students can't enrol themselves in the programme, but their teachers and school staff can call Heidi Tse at 2521 7673 on their behalf. Check out for full details.
