the owner that brings hope, the architect who lives green.

Soul Mate was the movie which turned Derek into an acclaimed director. But for a while, people took his success as given. Most people recognise Derek as the son of Hong Kong actor Eric Tsang, but are unaware of his difficult journey to become a vaunted director in his own right. Inspired by the films of Wong Kar-Wai and Woody Allen, Derek started working at a film company when he was 21, making coffee and running errands. It took him 5 years before he finally rose to the position of filming assistant. Fast forward to 2017, the 37-year-old has been shortlisted as best new director in the Golden Horse Film Festival. The road to success is an arduous one and can only be achieved by blood, sweat and an unrelenting spirit. These experiences and failures in turn become stories. Derek continues to search for new influences and inspiration, working to “change the world, one story at a time”.

Despite being the son of actors Jude Law and Sadie Frost, Rafferty Law never saw this as pressure to pursue acting. When it came to taking the stage, Rafferty was drawn instead to becoming a guitarist, keyboardist, bassist, or even a DJ. “The big screen isn’t my stage,” he said. Influenced by the music of Happy Mondays, The Beatles and Nirvana, Rafferty created an underground band, The Dirty Harrys, with his friends and sought to create a unique voice for his generation. Living in the spotlight because of his two superstar parents can be both an advantage and disadvantage; nevertheless, Rafferty aims to “be the voice of a new generation”.

How many people can actually visit and leave their footprint in ALL the countries within their lifetime? Not only did Cassie De Pecol succeed, she also achieved the world record of fastest person to travel to all countries of the world. With the belief that we cannot understand a place clearly if we never experience it, Cassie decided to discover the world in person instead of accepting the world that is described by others, and that inspired her to keep travelling. During her travels, she gained a new perception of oft-misrepresented communities such as the Middle East, discovered a newfound appreciation for our Earth, and even visited numerous schools to spread the message of peace. “You will explore more ever than you imagined and you will definitely understand yourself too,” Cassie said. Today, she encourages people to not hesitate and start their journey now. For Cassie, “a day without exploration is a day wasted”.
