Pursuing Dreams in Adversity

After Hubert’s father abandoned the family, his mother had to put more efforts to look after his younger sibling with severe special needs. As the eldest and only son, Hubert grew up in an impoverished family where he felt unloved and was burdened with parental expectations. Despite the adversity, he is a talented student athlete with a strong passion in fencing and is determined to pursue his athletic dream.
