Fifteen-year-old student Fu Chung-yan has won a gold medal in a national letter-writing contest organised by the State Post Bureau.


The bureau held the contest in support of the Universal Postal Union's 46th International Letter-Writing Competition for Young People.


Contestants had to imagine they were an advisor to the new United Nations Secretary-General and write about an international problem they wanted him to tackle first as well as their proposed solutions to it. 


Chung-yan from Tsuen Wan Government Secondary School wrote an eloquent piece on how to eradicate inequality between the sexes and won one of the 10 gold medals in the national contest.


She was presented the award by Hongkong Post Deputy Postmaster General Ngai Wing-chit today at the General Post Office in Central.


She said: "I joined the competition because I was drawn by its theme. 


"Living in Hong Kong, where we can enjoy gender equality, I hope to express my views on gender inequality and to make my contribution towards the promotion of gender equality by participating in this letter-writing competition."
