" Empathy drives me as I believe that it is part of human nature that we care for and desire to understand others, including those before and after our lifetime. I'm interested in meeting fellows from all walks of life and understanding their diverse perspectives to become more well-rounded as a person/leader. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Looking Outward: A Global Perspective on Daily Inclusivity
Despite being an international city, Hong Kong remains highly unequal, with many facing rampant discrimination based on protected characteristics such as race, gender, and disability. Instances of discrimination range from verbal microaggressions to acts of violence- yet, a majority of Hongkongers, unfortunately, remain apathetic.
With a view of questioning deeply ingrained assumptions and normative practices that prevent the realization of equality, Meh Feminism (@meh.feminism) was established to showcase daily occurrences of unfairness to raise awareness. As a social media initiative, we aim to educate through easily-digestible posts that provoke reflection and provide actionable starting points to incorporate inclusivity into one’s everyday life.
