Posted @withregram • @prestigesg "I’ve always wanted to do something that adds value to society or a community," says Fund Lee, executive director for @tea.chapter. "II hope to spread tea culture and knowledge to the younger generation and help them learn more about their roots. It’s an approachable enough experience such that if you’re interested, you can go deeper into the knowledge and art of tea, but otherwise it can just be casual tea drinking." #linkinbio for more.

Wow, thank you @prestigesg for allowing me to share my story with Prestige Magazine and your community.
This #interview didn’t feel like an interview at all thanks to the wonderful Annabel Tan. We just chatted for nearly 90 mins about life, work, passion and aspirations. Pulling out some quotes from our interview: “I felt extremely compelled to do (She Loves Tech) because while female representation in technology has become quite a big subject over the last five to seven years, there’s been a lot of talk, but not a lot of action,” “We want to continue to work to fill these gaps. Because if we don’t do it, then who will?”.
We often feel like we can’t make a difference. “oh, the world is so big” “there are too many issues, where should I even start” “other people are taking care of this”, I’m not an important enough person to move the needle”. Do these sound familiar? I hear variations of these all the time, and I’ve even told some of these statements to myself before. But if there’s anything that I hope that you get out of my story - it is that you CAN make a difference. We just need to put aside that voice in our head that tells us that we can’t and take those small bold steps towards the difference we want to see in the world.
