Olympic gold medallist and windsurfer Lee Lai-shan, explorer Rebecca Lee Lok-sze, legislative councillor and trade union leader Chan Yuen-han and award-winning stage actor Ko Tin-lung are just some of the big names who will be sharing their words of wisdom at this year's 'Career Challenge'. Organised by the Equal Opportunities Commission, the youth programme aims at 'breaking stereotypes and widening the horizons of hundreds of young people'. More than 900 secondary school students will join the programme, which was launched yesterday. 'We feel that social stereotyping has a profound effect on students, such as how they choose their careers or university courses as well as how they behave towards others in society,' said Angelica Tsang Hor-yan, project co-ordinator of Career Challenge. 'One of our guest speakers is Chong Chan-yau, the executive director of Oxfam Hong Kong. Being blind has not stopped him from excelling or achieving what he wants in life ... for him [blindness] is not a limitation.' Mr Chong is among the 10 'mentors' who have been invited to take part in the programme, which is in its second year. The mentors will, over the next three months, share with students their professional experiences. Frankie-m Lai will talk about being a ballet dancer - a profession dominated by women - while Chan Yuen-han will share her experiences as a trade unionist and politician, jobs that have traditionally been reserved for men.
