The Wider Image: Frustration of surviving pricey Hong Kong stirs protest anger
Native Hong Kong resident Maisy Mok, 22, a student studying international journalism, poses for a picture in her 9 sq meter bedroom of her family's apartment in Hong Kong, China June 29, 2019. Mok lives with her dad who sleeps on a couch as the apartment is too small. Her parents are divorced. "Recently I came back to live with my dad. Sometimes I feel bad that my dad has to sleep on the couch, because everybody deserves their own privacy," Mok said. "Us, who are born around the 1997 handover, we know that we are Hong Kong people. We don't have the sense that we are Chinese citizens until we get to secondary school. We have our own unique language. It's harder for us to transition because people of my generation we have this thought that we are Hong Kongers, this identity, we hold it very strongly," she added. "I feel I could never let go of freedom of speech. I feel like the judiciary system in Hong Kong is pretty good. And I love political satire, these are the things that got me into journalism and politics. If these were taken away, even with the money and benefits that the mainland can bring, or bigger housing, I wouldn't feel happy about it. Sometimes it feels like you are trapped. So for us, who are used to this kind of freedom, we might not get used to it." REUTERS/Thomas Peter SEARCH "YOUNG HK" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
