Yusef Profile
BA Year 4, major in English Studies
Sciences Po-HKU dual degree programme


My name is Yusef, and I’m a fourth year student at HKU, although it is my only second year in Hong Kong. I’m enrolled in the Sciences Po-HKU dual degree programme so my first two years were spent in the south of France, in a small town called Menton.

I’ve deeply enjoyed being an English Studies major because it’s given me the opportunity to explore the “personal” in my creative writing. I appreciate the freedom given to us to write freely and creatively for many of the courses. I’ve always known writing makes me happy, but finding out that I could access that joy through the Arts Faculty at HKU has really allowed that interest to flourish.

BA Year 2, major in General Linguistics

As a Year 2 student currently studying in the Bachelor of Arts programme at HKU, I chose to study Arts because, as a third-culture kid, I have been exposed to people from all walks of life. This exposure has led me to develop interests in arts and humanities, which are accompanied by passion, creativity, and versatility. Additionally, I am a Linguistics major and work as a Student Research Assistant in the Language Development Lab under the School of Humanities (Linguistics) for Sign Language projects.
