[Hong Kong] As the corporate partner of the Project WeCan Mobile Apps Development Programme, cherrypicks employed two secondary students as our summer interns this year. Tim Chan, cherrypicks’ VP, Technology Development, was invited to be one of the award presenters at the Award Presentation Ceremony on 27 August while Aton Chan, our Senior Application Developer and the immediate supervisor of the two interns Steven and Peter, shared on how the programme benefits cherrypicks as well as the students.
