Who are you? Tell us a bit more about yourself!

I am a banker with the mergers & acquisitions team based in Hong Kong. When I am off work, I always look forward to the next laugh with family and friends over drinks and a great meal.

What’s your story? Tell us about a life-changing incident.

I have been blessed with second chances in a few life changing situation – these situation have made me realize the fragility of life and to cherish second chances.

Why 50for50 and why now?

50for50 is a revolutionary platform to engage the “selfie” generation to not only think about ourselves but those in need around us – yes I’m part of the generation that invented the “selfie”.

What gets you up in the morning?

Doing the family proud – the most rewarding way to repay them back for all they have done.

Why this cause out of so many causes?

Education, knowledge and skills can never be taken from a person but can only empower. It is the best way to break the cycle of discrimination that disadvantaged children often face.

Any experiences with charity or non-profit work before?

When I was 14, I organized a charity teen party at Sparks discotheque (before clubbing there was the discotheque) where funds raised were channelled to Teen Challenge to help fund a Female Centre they were supporting.

What kind of change are you looking to bring about as a changemaker?

VIRALIZE the causes of these under-served charities and breaking the stereotype of our “selfie” generation.

What is your big idea on how to raise funds for 50for50?

Jointly working with other changemakers to host combined fund raising events bringing together all our friends and sharing the individual causes we are rallying for.
