Michelle Yeoh


Singapore Women's Weekly (Singapore) - - INSPIRE -

Not only is Michelle Yeoh a re­spected ac­tress, she’s also a pas­sion­ate ad­vo­cate for a num­ber of char­i­ta­ble causes, prov­ing she can make a dif­fer­ence in the real world as well as an in­ter­na­tional en­ter­tainer. “I want to be there for all those who are left be­hind in this world, whether it’s be­cause they are born poor, born a woman or born in an area af­fected by dev­as­ta­tion,” ex­plains the Ipoh-born star­let. Over the years, she’s done just that. In 2016, the United Na­tions Devel­op­ment Pro­gram named the award­win­ning ac­tress a Good­will Am­bas­sador fo­cus­ing on global devel­op­ment and dis­as­ter re­cov­ery.
