3 weeks ago, I disjointed my knee instantly thinking I won’t be able to do my job in Hong Kong. That was the first thing that came to my mind as I was laying there in pain. I am so grateful I managed and got to HK because I wouldn’t have want to miss this mission for anything. 10h direct flight with @flysas who made sure I not only got there in time, but I also got there very comfortable with a seat (more like a bed!) in business. I was happy, my knee was happy and the team was happy.
Hong Kong – thank you for everything you gave me this second time around. I constantly crave new experiences and you gave me just that. This year 5 global leaders were chosen to guide, train and interact with thousands of participants for this year’s leadership program. I am beyond humbled and grateful to everyone who wanted me as one of the 5 global leaders in Hong Kong. I would like to thank my team, The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups, The Jockey Club, M21, my assistant, One Young World, World Vision, Miranda, Chrystal, Iki, Yuki and all the outstanding interns who were a part of this year’s program. Thank you to all the participants and students. I truly hope you all gained something out of our workshops and lectures. I'm so happy I got to enlighten you all about the SDG's, youth empowerment, women empowerment and humanitarian crisis. In 5 days we carried out 20+ sessions successfully and together with the other 4 global leaders we enabled nearly 4,400 local young people or members of the public in Hong Kong to learn and be empowered. My goal and wish was for you all to develop an international understanding and perspective of pressing global problems and overseas solutions. A fat dose of extra special love to all my participants – I have never experienced so much love and support from any country and/or local leaders. You had me in tears by the end of my trip! I love you all so much. Know you are appreciated and loved always. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
