This “Guess Who Quiz” is actually ‘stolen’ from our students’ inspired descriptions of each teacher during our farewell dinner held on 2 May. When perusing the joyful photographs of that unforgettable night, the idea struck me that I should describe my literature colleagues and myself in an interesting way. So I came up with a list of nicknames for each of us. Tammy and I had a good laugh over this list, and we decided that it would be challenging and fun to post it on Agora.

See if you can guess who each person is! The winner will get a prize from us!

1. The Cheerleader
2. The Godmother
3. The Storyteller
4. The “Warm Fuzzy”
5. The “Dignified Iceberg”
6. Anecdote King
7. Gothic Queen
8. Prince Charming
9. Deadpan Master
10. Poetry Diva
11. Goddess of Truth

The first two who can guess all the names will have lunch with Tammy and me! We shall make a table of four.


HHeidi Huang is Lecturer at the Department of English Language and Literature. She got her MA and PhD in Transcultural Studies in Lyon where she met her husband from Hong Kong. She is trying really hard to live a well-balanced life as a woman of faith, a supportive wife, a dolphin mom, a cheerful giver, an innovative scholar, and an inspiring teacher.

    James, will you reconsider No. 4 and No. 5?

  3. James Au says:

    Maybe No. 4 is Dr. Heidi Huang, and No. 5 is Dr. Peter Jordan then?

  4. Heidi says:

    Bingo James! You got the names right at your second attempt!
