University student Amy Chan Ching-yan, 21, is counting down the days to the kickoff of the World Bank-International Monetary Fund annual meeting on Tuesday. The second-year student of tourism management at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University will watch events unfold at the Convention and Exhibition Centre at Wan Chai. She has been recruited by the Hong Kong Monetary Authority as a 'student ambassador', working for less than $400 a day for 13 consecutive days from September 14 to 26. Ms Chan attended a full-day training course before being sent to the venue to 'meet and greet' many of the 14,000 delegates from more than 180 countries. What's on your mind? I'm looking forward to witnessing this great meeting when Chinese leaders, other dignitaries, finance ministers and top representatives of the international community will attend. I hope I'll be assigned to help guests inside the grand hall during the opening ceremony on Tuesday. I've already been to Australia and mainland China. This is a golden opportunity for me to meet people from many different countries. I might be tired after working 13 consecutive days, but it's a challenge and good experience to get involved. I really want to see how such an international meeting runs. What have you been doing in the past few days? I've been assigned to help at one of the information counters. We've to make sure no guest gets lost in this big venue, ensuring they can find help anytime and anywhere. Whenever I'm free, I've been looking down into the main entrance to find out who's arrived. It's interesting to see some guests wearing their country's costume. What are you concerned about? I'm worried I can't help guests who don't speak English, Cantonese or Putonghua. However, I'll try my best; they'll receive the best service. I think we'll be very busy when the opening ceremony is drawing near and many guests are arriving in Hong Kong to visit the venue. What will you do after the meeting? I'll take a break - and then prepare for the new academic year, which starts on September 29.
