Sharing from Scholarship winners

10 awardees visited UNIQLO Headquarter in Tokyo Japan in July 2017. Having direct communication with Mr. YANAI, CEO of Fast Retailing Group and Mr. PAN, CEO of UNIQLO, Greater China, we are pleased to have Kelly, Venus, Pinky and Izzac sharing their fruitful experience during the trip.

Kelly
BSSc (Hons) in Psychology, Lingnan University

One of the most memorable moments is the interaction with Mr. Ken Machado, who represents UNIQLO Sustainability Department. He shared various examples on how UNIQLO sustains our world such as the Code of Conduct, humane approach in the collection of down, environmental friendly LED lightings in stores as well as community work. Being attracted by its determination of changing the world, I would like to join the company after graduation, in order to help delivering happiness to people through business.

Being one of the UNIQLO Manager Candidate (UMC) starting from June 2017, I will demonstrate what I have learnt to create a sustainable environment and make the world a better place.

Venus
BA (Hons) in Translation, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

The scholarship program offered awardees not only financial incentive but also provided us a valuable opportunity to meet a lot of the Fast Retailing’s outstanding global leaders, especially Mr. YANAI who is the real time successful model of his dream.

The trip to Tokyo also broadened my horizons and surprised me that Fast Retailing is such an enormous International enterprise with a sophisticated structure. People working in this big family have their own dreams and keep growing with the corporation towards the same direction regardless of their nationalities.

Finally, I want to express my sincere gratitude to UNIQLO, which provoked me to think of my own dream about the future and furnished me with a treasurable opportunity to meet the global talents.

Pinky
BA (Hons) Fashion & Textiles (Fashion & Textile design), The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to UNIQLO for providing me the valuable experience to meet senior management and the global CEO, Mr. YANAI in the headquarter of Fast Retailing.

Eager to become a fashion designer, it is a treasurable opportunity to understand more about the apparel industry and the fast fashion business during the trip to Tokyo. Fashion moves fast, and so it is also important for us to have the global vision and be long-sighted, to see what others have not seen yet. Having direct communication with Mr.YANAI is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and his words are inspiring.

Undoubtedly, spending time with everyone is delightful and grateful. The communication with Mr. YANAI and the encouragement from him was remarkable and impressive. With all the insights gained, it was a great learning experience and a fruitful trip with all the parties. Hoping the awardees in the coming year will also gain a treasurable experience from the Tokyo journey.

Izzac
BBA (Hons) in in Hotel and Tourism Management, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Being a business student, I am always interested in understanding the success of renowned multinational companies. During the 5-day Tokyo trip, I gained in-depth understanding of UNIQLO through direct communication with Mr. YANAI, Mr. PAN and the Senior Management. I truly appreciated the product innovations, corporate philosophy and social responsibilities of UNIQLO. Another impressive experience was Mr. YANAI’s farsighted visions and inspiring insights during the meeting with us. Definitely I will apply what I have learnt to the implementation of my FinTech dream.
