Looking for your big break in music, drama or arts? RTHK's new online show could be the answer. Online radio station Teen Power will launch Y, a new interactive programme that will serve as a creative platform for the city's young English-speaking audience. The name Y stands for both youth power and the inquisitive nature of young people. Targeted at audiences aged 15 to 25, the weekly programme will be presented primarily in English from midnight to 1am on Fridays on the Teen Power website ( www.teenpower.rthk.org.hk ) starting from October 21. It will be hosted by Canto-pop singer Toby Leung, radio show presenter Angela Au (former member of the girl group Cookies) and university student Leo Wong. The presenters will address trends and social issues, organise school tours, and help young people to showcase their talents in creative art. 'Young people nowadays are under quite a lot of pressure. The education system is rigid. For example, if you are not good at maths, there is little chance you can go to university,' said 23-year-old Wong (above right, with Leung). 'We hope the programme will develop more creative opportunities for young people who are passionate about music, writing, drama or arts, and that we [as hosts] can play a role in helping them pursue their goals.' The trio have a number of ideas for the programme, including the broadcast of English language dramas written by students. Young writers can send them a one-page synopsis for consideration. Writers of selected stories will be invited to take part in the production and can even handpick friends or classmates to join the cast. Budding composers and lyricists can also submit their works to the hosts, who will help arrange studio recordings of outstanding songs. Fashion buffs are invited to design meaningful logos or graphics for clothes and pitch them to Leung, who studied design in university and can help produce their works. The young presenters hope Y will have an impact on society while providing pop music and entertainment for young people. 'I studied drama when I was at King George V School and through the class, I discovered that acting was fun,' said Leung, 22, who starred in the recent comedy film Drink Drank Drunk and released her solo debut album Bear In Mind earlier this year. 'I am not good at studies. My strengths lie in music, fashion, sports and drama.' Au, 22, experienced the frustration of growing up in a society that values conformity over creativity. When she was in secondary school, she starred in Spacked Out, a serious, low-profile film about problem teenagers that was classified as a Category III movie because it contained foul language. Au (below) said she was first heavily criticised by her teachers for taking on the role. Years later, after she joined Cookies, she continued to receive criticism for the part by her record company. Few seemed to care about the movie's moral message and honest approach, she said. 'Very few films talked about teenage problems as deeply [as Spacked Out,]' said Au. When faced with the pressures of society, the solution is to be true to yourself. And that's the message that Y wants to bring to young people. 'A lot of teenagers today hide their true selves,' said Leung. 'They are not cool, but they pretend to be cool. They are scared to be different. But you don't have to wear khaki trousers just because they are trendy. 'Find your own image and don't lose your sense of self. Appearance isn't everything. It's your soul and inner self that creates your image.'
