Olivia Cotes-James

Olivia is the founder and CEO of LUÜNA naturals, Asia’s first female-led period care company, on a mission to create healthy and planet-friendly periods. In 2015 her work took her to Shanghai where, alongside her full-time job, she began research into menstrual health in Asia. This research spanned the following 4 years, during which time she came to deeply understand how the lack of education around period health and unhealthy products negatively impacts the lives of women & girls across the region. 

Brian Lau

Brian was a male gender at birth but later discovered about his intersex gender as feminine features started developing during puberty. Despite the stigmatization and oppression that came with making sense of his/her identity, Brian was determined to pursue acting and has found a sense of belonging in the world of theatre. Brian is passionate and determined in using theatre as a transformative tool to guide young minds of different backgrounds to think out of the box and unfurl their imagination.

We are a dedicated group of students at City University of Hong Kong with a mission to spread ideas worth sharing. It has been a treasuring experience for the last three years as we gathered to establish a community driven by each of our member's differences and compassion. We strive to bring innovative ideas to the discussion, and from that, we seek to learn something new every day.
