Message from the HKUAAO President, Margaret Law


When the New Year starts, everything is refreshed and revitalized

一年伊始, 萬象更新

Let me start by wishing everyone a prosperous and healthy New Year.

2023 marks the Year of the Rabbit in the Lunar Chinese Calendar. Rabbit is a symbol of fortune, health, energy, fertility and gentleness.

I would like to share with you my New Year Resolution inspired by the characteristics and traits of a rabbit.

To have long ears like a rabbit to enable us to hear from near and far; to be empathetic and compassionate to others’ needs;  

To have red eyes , not from working overnight, but from opening our eyes wide  to see what is happening in the world ;

To have good health , energy and quickness in response. Quoted : Moving like a running rabbit “動若脱兔”

Maybe it is not a bad idea to adopt a vegetarian diet like that of a rabbit’s.

Last but not least, I would like to conclude with the idiom” a rabbit crossing your path” . I sincerely wish that you all see this rabbit crossing your path bringing you good luck and a positive change in your lives.

HKUAAO is here to serve, facilitate and communicate with our alumni in Ontario.
