WHAT IS “OWN YOUR FUTURE” Show? 

We have been organizing OWN Future Fairs at different schools since 2016, one of our biggest learning is that it’s not enough to have a once a year event for students to explore their futures. Students need access to continuous learning and inspiration, this is how “OWN Your Future” show is born.

WHAT IS OWN YOUR FUTURE

“OWN Your Future” is a weekly show twice a week where our founder, Natalie Chan, is the host and will interview professionals from different industries to share about the work they do and their stories. This will be an online broadcast (YouTube / IG) where students can log on, join the conversation and ask questions in real time. The goal of the show is to offer opportunities for students to meet inspirational people, which also connects into OWN Academy’s offline experiences.

The first season starts on February 15th  2020, Saturday at 8:00 pm Hong Kong Time. We have a list of exciting and diverse group of inspiring people for the first 8 episodes.
