Mena is an undergraduate Arts student majoring in English at The University of Hong Kong. She has a zest for exploring the complementarity between philanthropy and environmental protection with the hopes of achieving her social aspiration of eradicating poverty, protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity for all. Devoting herself to the betterment of the less fortunate, she conducted extensive voluntary work and social innovations which aim to tackle social inequality resulting in unfair allocation of resources. She is the founder of a non-profit Instagram shop (@spreadlovewithart_mena), which advocates waste reduction by renovating customers’ daily commodities through hand-painting meanwhile being a form of creative fundraising since all income will be donated to the charity to provide quality education for underprivileged children in China. To promote effective altruism, she constantly tries to clear a general misconception of using the administrative costs ratio of an NGO as an indicator of its efficiency. She believes that in the long run, education for global citizenship is needed to enable more people to participate voluntarily in creating a better world.
