Congratulations to Fung Hok Lam on accepting a scholarship to University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma

August 06, 2015

Fung Hok Lam has accepted a scholarship to University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma (USAO) this August. Fung Hok Lam, 18 years old, plays as a midfielder for Happy Valley AA. He is a member of the Hong Kong Youth National Team and the Hong Kong Futsal Team.

Other than having the opportunity to compete in the competitive U.S. university soccer league, Fung Hok Lam will be aiming to earn a Bachelor degree in Business Commerce and Psychology.

The Affinity team is pleased to have the chance to accompany another bright talent of HK throughout his development path.

It's been a long journey for Fung Hok Lam, but we all know the best is yet to come. He will be playing university soccer at one of the best soccer programs in his league and earn a degree in a program that he likes. USAO was ranked 16th best university in the US last season. The USAO coaching staff has high expectations for him and we hope he can make an impact right away. 

"Fung Hok Lam demonstrated resilience and perseverance throughout his journey of becoming a U.S university soccer player. This dream is unimaginable for most athletes and students in Hong Kong. His journey is a key example of why a small percentage of high school students around the world can become a U.S university athlete, as he had to overcome academic, visa, and physical obstacles. We are all extremely proud of him and we know his story will inspire more Hong Kong students to aim for greatness." says Magnus Leung, Founder of Affinity Education.
