Claudine Ying

This month, Claudine Ying's first-born will arrive and perhaps experience Bebegarten, the education platform she founded that serves the youth (and parents) of Hong Kong. Daughter of Michael Ying and ballerina-turned designer Flora Zeta Cheong-Leen, Ying was interested in education as a bonding experience with her father. Together, the father-daughter duo has worked on charitable programmes building schools across China. Ying is actively involved in Yanai Foundation, which provides schoolbooks to underprivileged children. Impending motherhood has only strengthened her drive to make a difference in the world.
