Then I was involved in many different fields: Freelance Photography, Garments, Interior Design, Volunteer/Philanthropic work in various Arts, Music, Charitable organisations. Published 4 cookbooks to benefit charities.

Who was your greatest influence at Mayfield? 

Sr Philomena - she was my first Housemistress at St Michael's when I left home in Hong Kong for the first time. She was very kind and made sure I felt at home. I think she left Mayfield after my second year but left a deep impression.
