THANK YOU to our host with the most, Teacher-by-day-Comedian-by-night funnyman Ryan Hynek. Go see him at TakeOut Comedy! He is as funny as he is generous and talented. That’s A LOT of funny in one man.
THANK YOU to our amazing AAJA Asia volunteers and student volunteers who made sure you were well taken care of throughout the evening!
But most important THANK YOU for coming out and supporting AAJA Asia Chapter and the work we do to support each other, young journalists and students in media in the APAC region. YOU helped us raise $58,000 HKD last night!!! This money will go towards student scholarships, J Camp for high school students, professional development, workshops and our 7th annual New.Now.Next Media conference back here in Hong Kong, May 2017! An exciting year to come.
We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank YOU for making it one uproarious, hilarious, ego-boosting/crushing, brain-taxingly fun night.
See you next year!!
