Coming of Age: setting goals for a good life
1500 eighteen-year olds gathered at the Hong Kong Convention Centre on 2 May to mark their age of majority with a rite of passage. The transition from adolescence to adulthood is celebrated in most communities as the time when young people take up the responsibility for their own lives - both in the legal and the personal sense. Since 1998 the Federation has seen 10,000 young people celebrate the occasion with a public vow of commitment to civil society and their country. Last week they were led by the Secretary for Justice, The Honourable Elsie Leung who offered inspiration by saying:




"You have attained majority and have acquired many rights and freedoms that you did not hitherto enjoy. These bring responsibilities to yourself and your parents, to society and to the state. In the long term we are part of the history of humanity and must be accountable towards later generations. Therefore, you must now set your goals then march towards them with perseverance to a colourful future whether you continue studying, take a job or take up vocational training."

The Honourable Elsie Leung, GBM, JP, Secretary for Justice
