Originally from Hong Kong, an international city with mainly Chinese, she got her first in-depth multicultural experience through her MBA programme in Warwick Business School. She then discovered her interest in cultural exchange and later on founded her company, 'One Dear World' when her son was 1 year old.
'One Dear World' is an educational toy company with the vision of nurturing future global citizens. Winnie believes all children, both boys and girls, deserve a doll that represents them so that they can appreciate themselves as they are. Seeing dolls that look different from them ensures that children can grow up with a broad worldview, preparing them to make friends with people from around the world. Hence, she crowdfunded the project in early 2017 and produced a collection of multicultural rag dolls and a children's book called 'London Hat Hunting Mission' that introduces world cultures to young children. The company has recently won the Family Business of the Year by the Federation of Small Business (FSB) London and featured on BBC. Winnie also continues developing her brand by working with not-for-profit organisation and fair trade producer while maintaining a work family balance.
