​Hong Kong Schoolmates Go Back in Time

Nov 11, 2016

Brown University, Rhode Island <br> <br> DEREK YEUNG, Class of 1995 <br> <br> Occupation: Chief executive, She.com; director, Chef Nic Holdings; executive director, Asia Coal <br> Studied: Applied mathematics and economics <br> Favourite memory: I had a blast at Brown. There are too many happy memories to single out just one. <br> What was the most important thing you learned at school? <br> Life is full of options. You have to make your own choices. Your decisions may be right or wrong but you made them, so suck it up. <br> PATTY GAW, Class of 1992 <br> <br> Occupation: Partner, Ferastyle.com <br> Studied: International relations and history <br> Favourite memories: Many good times with friends and eventual husband Kenny Gaw <br> What were you like at school? <br> I did everything from volunteer work to running a birthday cake delivery operation. I also had long hair. <br> <br> LUCY MARRIOTT, Class of 1995 <br> <br> Occupation: Mother <br> Studied: French <br> Favourite memory: Sitting on the main lawn steps before lectures in the summer <br> What were you like at school? <br> I’m pretty much the same just more confident. <br> <br> EVAN CHOW, Class of 2004 <br> <br> Occupation: Managing partner, MCL Financial Group <br> Studied: Applied mathematics, economics and organisational studies <br> Favourite memories: Pulling all-nighters in the libraries before exams and to meet deadlines, then driving to Boston or New York to spend time with friends and family <br> What were you like at school? <br> I was quite a nerd and focussed mainly on academics and finding the best job and career path after graduation. I still have the same guiding principles of hard work and discipline but have more balance. <br> <br> Location / Seafood Room, Causeway Bay
