Hi I am Zoya Zhao, a Year 2 student in Hong Kong Baptist University, majoring international journalism. I come from Guangzhou, Guangdong province, which is famous for its delicious food! Yes, I enjoy eating food! Crazy about travelling, I especially like having a trip alone. During my trip, I enjoy experiencing various cultures and communicating with different people, since I can know a variety of opinions about the same object. Also, I have a high interest in graphic designing by using Photoshop. Hope you can like my posters!
Too straightforward to live outside journalism. Prefer the ugly truth than the comforting lies. Believe a picture can tell more than a million words. Trying to build up my journalistic skills. Not proud of what I’ve done so far.
You never walk alone,
Or swallow your sorrow on your own.
Light will illuminate the entire dark way ahead finally one day,
And lead you to a mecca of life.
Never lose faith to justice,
Despite pains in your eyes,
As I will endeavor to support you till the death.
International Journalism student. Year Two. Currently studying at Hong Kong Baptist University. Loves books and poetry. Hates political correctness and safe spaces. I think the unthinkable, write the unwritable, print the unprintable, speak the unspeakable, cover the uncoverable. Censorship will always fail, and the truth will always prevail.
