Embark on a journey to find your passion

On Jan. 31, 2017, UCalgary alumna Nicole Fung, BComm’10, will take you on a digital tour of what life is like for a professional food, travel and lifestyle writer living in Hong Kong.

Sometimes, when your head tells you one thing, but your heart — or, in Nicole’s case, her stomach — leads you on a different path, it’s worth the risk to follow your passion. Nicole wasn’t sure where her commerce degree would take her, so the travel fanatic boarded a plane to Hong Kong to find out.

After three years working in finance, Nicole decided it was time to go in a different direction. She started the website That Food Cray!!, launching a dream career fuelled by her truest passions: travel and food.

Join us and get inspired by Nicole’s journey.
