Dare to Break Barriers

“Walter can be anything except for a pilot.”

As a child, Walter was diagnosed with retinal degeneration, which left him with only 30% vision. Despite his condition, Walter’s mother always encouraged him to try new things. He won a place at The Chinese University of Hong Kong after achieving one A and two Bs in his A-Levels, and interned at German and Hong Kong investment banks. Although his résumé was impressive, his visual impairment remained a significant barrier to employment. This challenge inspired him to establish the Care-ER Association, which is dedicated to improving the career prospects of people with disabilities and fostering workplace inclusion.
