Carol Cheung graduated from LSE with a BSc in Social Anthropology in 2012. She then studied Human Resource Management and Employment Relations and Foundations of Management at LSE Summer School. Since graduating, she has had positions at the Consulate General of Canada in Hong Kong and has worked in the field of international relations.

“One of the outstanding memories I have of my learning experience was leading a team to develop a proposal regarding the green campaigns on campus. We researched, analysed and interviewed stakeholders to find an innovative way of reducing non-recyclable waste on LSE’s campus. The proposal our team developed required us to engage with various stakeholders, including shops/restaurants nearby LSE campus, and encourage them to use and promote recyclable cutleries and containers. This experience taught me to think outside of the box in order to develop fresh ideas, which I find extremely important in the workplace – especially when problem solving alongside my colleagues.”

Carol went on to undertake an MSc in Human Evolution and Behaviour at UCL in 2013 followed by an MA in Global Communication at The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2014.

“I really enjoyed how lecturers encouraged discussions about case studies during classes, which allowed us to think independently and openly present our opinions. These discussions trained my critical thinking and analytical skills, expanding the range of viewpoints I had when I later went on to pursue postgraduate study. Class discussions also enhanced my presentation skills and built my confidence in expressing my opinions.

Being in the competitive and rigorous LSE learning environment developed my mental stamina and has since helped me maintain a positive attitude when overcoming difficult situations in life, like when I was working on my graduate dissertation or when I have to meet tight project deadlines at work.”

Carol now works as Trade Commissioner at the Consulate General of Canada in Hong Kong, where she is responsible for Canada’s international education strategy and promotes Canada’s creative industries in the Hong Kong market. In her previous post at the Consulate General of Canada in Hong Kong, she was awarded the Consul General’s Citation of Excellence in recognition of her continually outstanding performance of leadership, innovation, teamwork and service over a period of years.
