Our Executive Committee
Founder & President
Kristen founded the Hong Kong Joint School Society of Psychology in 2020 and has been the sitting President since then. Her determination in promoting the understanding of psychology and the importance of mental health has earned her the Spirits of Hong Kong Award. Her work is featured on different press releases (eg. RTHK, SCMP). As an aspiring clinical psychologist, Kristen has a strong desire to serve others and accommodate different voices in our society. She hopes to empower young people who are passionate about psychology, transform their talents to better serve and impact those around them, and ultimately, pioneer meaningful change in mental health in our community.
I am currently an undergraduate student majoring in Psychology at the University of Hong Kong. I always felt very unfamiliar and distant with Psychology as a field of study. I posed constant queries like “What is psychology?”, “Which school should I apply to?”, “What is there to do with a psychology degree?”. I am sure you, too have these questions in mind. That is why I would be more than glad to share my experience with you as a point of reference. Studying psychology may seem to be a bumpy road, but with our support, I am certain that you will be able to go through all the nooks and crannies with ease. Further developing your passion, and achieving a bright future in psychology. I look forward to connecting with more local students and mentors, in light of exploring the psychology world together!

Christy has founded the Hong Kong Joint School Society of Psychology back in 2020 along with Kristen. After stepping down from the executive position, she remains passionate about the field and is currently doing the International Bachelor of Psychology programme at Leiden University in the Netherlands. Based in both Hong Kong and the Netherlands, she is aspired to be working in the psychology field in the future and specifically with people coming from different cultural backgrounds. She is sure that the society will continue to serve its aim of providing a platform for psychology enthusiasts and is looking forward to the day when mental health is truly acknowledged by the public.
