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.
