Christine Chong

Speakers Bureau Liason, WE

WE was my first job after graduating from university. At the time, I thought I had learned a fair amount about how to live one’s life. Looking back, I had so much room for inner growth as a young adult. Working at WE and being surrounded by colleagues with diverse life experiences, perspectives, dreams and ideals so different from yet similar to mine taught me to embrace differences, appreciate who I was and learn the impact small actions could have on others. The staff trip to Kenya was the highlight of my time with WE, which I still cherish to this day. The children there had twinkling eyes and big smiles and they were proud of their schools and water tanks built with donations to WE. I cannot forget how small and humble I felt. It was eye-opening to see the real impact our work and donations had on the communities and, recently, to celebrate a new life chapter, my husband and I asked our wedding guests for donations to WE, which was responded to with generosity, and the organization matched the funds to support the education pillar in Haiti. I will continue to cheer for WE and its work for empowering children.
