Changing the World One Picture at a Time
Bonnie Chiu (BBA 2013) chose the road less travelled upon graduation. Instead of pursuing high-paying jobs, she founded Lensational, a non-profit social enterprise aiming to empower women through photography. Inspired by her experiences overseas, Lensational was born of her belief in the power of photography to give the marginalised a voice of their own. In just two years, the all-volunteer organisation has offered photography training to nearly 200 women in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Burma, and Hong Kong. She truly believes that it takes just a small group of committed citizens to change the world. Read more here, or click here to view Bonnie’s video message.
