February Greetings

ACAA  月祝语


Having spent the Chinese New Year holidays relaxing and recharging, the ACAA team is fully geared up to kick off a variety of events in 2017. The first round of events includes the Alumni Welcome Back Receptions to be held in March in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.


The ACAA warmly welcomes recent graduates back to China and invites them to join our ever-increasing alumni community! We are here to help alumni maintain connections with their fellow alumni and alma mater and provide supporting services. Our Welcome Back Reception events are a fantastic opportunity to meet other recent graduates with similar experiences and to connect with established members of the alumni community.   


The ACAA Mentor Program has kicked off and provides our premium members with the opportunity to learn from high profile and experienced mentors across a variety of sectors. Please stay tuned to our 2017 Event Calendar for more details.


Apart from offline events, the ACAA is also expanding its alumni network across social media using its platforms on WeChat and Weibo. We aim to help alumni connect to one another egardless of time or location.

Alumni Profile


Mr. Ray Chen

University of South Queensland




Ray Chen, the CEO of How-Trans Education & Technology, is currently working on his new project, which is designed to help more people create their own stories through an online application called “Comb-Story”.

The connection between Mr Chen and Australia started about 10 years ago, when he started his MBA program at the University of South Queensland. Upon graduation he decided to transfer his career from the foreign trade industry to the education and training industry. He found out that he is more qualified to be a teacher, and is much happier sharing his experience and knowledge with young people for their “start-up projects”, helping them avoid unnecessary detours and delays. His main focus at the moment is helping young entreprenours “develop impressive roadshows and storytelling approaches to pitch to investors”.


Through Mr Chen's guidance and advice, nearly 50 start-up projects have successfully received VC investment. In July 2016, Mr Chen started his new project, "Comb-Story", which is a change from his previous training business focus. It is not only for entrepreneurs and investors, but for ordinary people to create, perform and showcase their own story through an online application. Mr Chen hopes that one day everyone could effectively present “who I am” by telling their stories, and thus improve their personal brand.
