Personal Stories

As an aspiring pediatrician, I’ve always been interested in improving the health of people in the community. I thought interning for ALC would be a great opportunity for me to play a role in the public health field and to understand how organizations create lasting impact by collaborating and developing strategies together. During my time at ALC, I’ve realized that everyone here is extremely dedicated to spreading awareness about HBV and our passion is what brings us together. It feels great to know that by informing the public about HBV, we’re protecting people from the disease, preventing babies from developing chronic hepatitis as they mature, and saving lives. Most of all, it feels great being part of such a wonderful team. –Karen

I came to know about ALC through a glance of BBS news and what made me decide to join is a little complicated. First, I never had a chance to know more about an NGO, which I really wanted to have a deep understanding of, so joining ALC was a good choice for me to broaden my mind. Second, I am always fond of being a volunteer to realize my dream. I do believe that by getting people together, we can change our world to be a better one. Third, it’s great meeting people here and to have fun with other members. It’s worth devoting my time to. –Xiao Chi

I’m a medical student always, and a dreamer sometimes. All I want is to make a difference in the world by healing others. Just like what John Lennon sang in his song, “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will live as one.” Join ALC and get together to fight against hepatitis B, so you can make a change as well. =D –Xiao Han

I joined ALC because I really want to help eradicate hepatitis B and wake up people’s awareness! It was a great chance that I knew Linda through Dr. So’s speech. I arranged the first Jade Ribbon activity at Peking University, and met a lot of cute volunteers here! –Jiang Qi

One day when I was surfing on the BBS of Peking University, my eyes were suddenly caught by an ad of ALC, which said that they were trying to find someone who was interested in helping people with HBV. This was the first time I heard the name of ALC, and at the first sight of seeing the ad, I had made up my mind to join the ALC team and be a volunteer of team HBV. My father has been an HBV carrier for over 20 years. I want to learn more about the disease in order to help my father as well as other HBV carriers, but there were few chances for me to achieve my goal until I met ALC. As we know, there are over 10,000,000 people in Asia who have HBV. It is necessary for us to make efforts to draw people's attention to HBV, and I am very glad that I am now doing such meaningful things. –Wang Hao

When I first joined ALC, I just intended to do some public welfare during my spare time. However, when I got to know ALC better, I started to understand that I can really make a difference in the world. Thus, I stayed and I want more and more people to know what we are doing. –Qing Pingyong
