Refugee Connect Team
Hi, I’m Sophia, a Y12 student at ESF Sha Tin College and the founder and director of Refugee Connect. After volunteering at the Refugee Union and conversing with refugees and asylum seekers, I learned more about their hopes and dreams, their challenges and struggles, and I believe there are a lot of incredible stories waiting to be told. That is what motivated me to start Refugee Connect –– to raise awareness amongst locals about this talented community of people, and to try alleviating some of the challenges they face in asylum.
Hi, I’m Stefanie, a rising F5 IB student at St. Paul’s Co-educational College, with a passion for volunteering, poverty-related issues, business and social entrepreneurship. In my free time, I like to play basketball, dance, read or occasionally, go for a run. As part of Refugee Connect, I hope to learn more about the plight of refugees as well as do my part in supporting them in our society.
Hi! I’m Elli. I’m currently a 15 year old student about to study at Li Po Chun United World Collages. In my free time I really enjoy cooking and watching documentaries. I joined Refugee Connect because I think it is very important to make Hong Kong a more inclusive city, especially for those in need.
