On March 8 to 10, we asked our readers to nominate the most inspiring woman in Lantau, in celebration of International Women’s Day.
We would like to thank our readers, from which we received dozens for entries for this competition, and read many endearing and inspiring stories. Of these, we chose three.
Here are your finalists:
Pui O resident Okka Scherer, who homes more than 100 abandoned dogs.
Pui O resident Kinzie (her full name), the founder of Hong Kong Heartbeat, who encourages people to be more mindful, to support one another and reconnect with nature.
Last but not least is Mui Wo resident Jacqui Green of Protection of Animals Lantau South (PALS), who has been rescuing and re-homing various animals on Lantau, DB and Peng Chau for 20-plus years.
You can vote for the ultimate winner, from the three resident-nominated finalists in three ways:
1) placing your vote on the comments section at the bottom of this article,
2) leaving a comment on the Facebook link on Around DB or Life on Lantau Facebook pages, or
3) by emailing us at [email protected], should you wish to vote privately.
Voting period is until April 10.
Congratulations to our nominees!
