What is your biggest challenge or obstacle as a student activist?

Ivy Teng Lei

My biggest challenge as a student activist is maintaining a bipartisan attitude, especially when faced with politically sensitive issues. As an organization leader, it’s difficult to be supportive under one’s own capacity because we’re almost automatically labeled with the organization’s stamp. What’s important about activism is to address each issue individually, that not one size fit all and we have to make decisions on the basis the issue’s nature and history.
