Today I was honoured to be invited to Discovery Bay International School Senior School for their Hero in My Eyes Assembly  where the Grade 7s and 8s are beginning their study unit on their own personal heroes! I was asked to talk about my own personal hero, and it was very hard to choose! For me, a hero is someone who is willing to put their comfort, safety Рeven their lives Рat risk for the sake of helping others. And 17 year old Pakistani high school girl Malala Yousafszai, born 12/7/1997, has done just that Рfor almost a third of her short life so far. She believes so strongly in the right of all children to an education Рrich, poor, girl or boy Рthat she spoke out against the Taliban in her home in the Swat Valley Рand almost died for that belief! Now she lives in Birmingham in England and is continuing to speak out for education for all. What a fabulous hero she is! You can find out more about her at http://www.malala.org and I encourage you to visit that site right away with your mum and dad!

Goodbye marvellous Melbourne – and home again in Hong Kong!

A fond farewell to marvellous Melbourne, one of my favourite cities in the world! It’s not for nothing that it’s been voted the Most Liveable City in the World – again! On my last day, Tuesday, I visited the fantastic State Library of Victoria. Here I am posing in front of it! But have no fear – I will return, and soon I hope!

And now I’m back home in Hong Kong, another of my favourite cities in the world! It’s good to be back!
