"ISSIA is one of the few safe platforms in Hong Kong where teenagers can talk openly about current issues without the fear of being criticized, and it emphasises on how every person has a different perspective towards current affairs."

- Jasmine Wan

"After discovering ISSIA’s platform, I’ve come to explore political issues like value fragmentation as well as cultural issues like individuality.  As a platform managed by students, this community is proof that teens are capable of advocating their opinions, facilitating discourse, and is passionate about social issues."


- Angela Chan
