Matthew Kwok, Raymond Yang

Co-Founder of Just Feel (an organisation that aims to lead the change on mental health education in Hong Kong by promoting social-emotional learning)

Matthew said, “It gives me great satisfaction when I help others acquire knowledge, maturing from ‘incomprehension’ to ‘comprehension.’”

Raymond said, “Once, a student was not happy. After talking to her, she stopped crying and instead said happily, ‘Great, teacher listened to me’. I truly feel that students want to be understood. Being listened to is crucial to them.”

Matthew and Raymond are enthusiastic about teaching. Apart from helping students acquire knowledge, they focus more on students’ emotions and feelings. As a matter of fact, all young people want to be listened to and understood. As parents or teachers, how much time do we spend on our youth to understand their needs?
