HK: Do your peers share your de­sire to change so­cial in­jus­tices?

PD: Grow­ing up, I went to an in­ter­na­tional school with friends who were as priv­i­leged as me and weren’t in­ter­ested in step­ping out of their com­fort zones to reach out to those less for­tu­nate. Hong Kong makes it easy not to leave the ex­pat bub­ble. Those who have been most will­ing to take part in my cause are those who have lived through sim­i­lar hard­ships or have seen first­hand what it’s like. Some of them are from the US, where peo­ple think more about im­mi­gra­tion and mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism. Hong Kong may be a global city, but eth­nic mi­nori­ties re­main sep­a­rate from the lo­cal com­mu­nity.
