What does Channel C mean to you: Many things, inspiration, friendship and a proof that efforts can lead to change. Before founding Channel C with Cecilia and Pan, I had talked to many people about the issue of cultural integration and personally struggled with it. For me, Channel C is a great platform where we could really talk about it, repeatedly till others take it seriously. I learned so much from working with my wonderful teammates and the volunteers.
