Ms Anthonia Hui and Mr Leonardo Drago
Ms Anthonia went to work at the age of 6 to put herself and her sister to school as her parents were too poor to educate all the children, and chose to only put the sons to school. She learnt how to become financially independent and taking charge of her own destiny.

"Supporting a philanthropic bursary is not only an act of generosity, but also an investment in the future. By supporting those in need, we give them the opportunity to access education and training that will empower them to reach their full potential, creating positive ripple effect on the individual, their family and the community at large. With the bursary, we help to address social and economic inequality which is essential for a sustainable and just society. We are investing in the well-being of all members of society, both now and in the future." - Ms Anthonia
