She says Life has been kind to her, but she knows that a lot of women, particularly Asian women, do not have the same opportunities that she was fortunate enough to have. She therefore wants to use the platform that she has to do her bit to empower Asian women to achieve their true potential.
“If I can change just one life, it will be my proudest achievement”
As the mother of a teenage Asian daughter, She thinks it is truly inspiring to be a part of AWEsome, a campaign that promotes diversity and reduces barriers to inclusion but she looks forward to a day when such a campaign won’t be necessary because we will have achieved everything that we set to achieve.
