About Me

My name is Helen, I am a keen writer/content creator who is currently living in Sheffield, UK, but born and raised in Hong Kong.

My field of work includes day-to-day social issues, in order to raise awareness of underrepresented groups in our society and reveal social injustice.

Speaking of little things in our daily lives, I’m also fond of writing about lifestyle, health and pop culture. 

I would also love to travel around to explore what is happening in different countries, sharing my experiences and provide a brand-new point of view of this world we live in.

Opinion: Stop Labelling Skincare, It Is For Everyone

Opinion: Stop Labelling Skincare, It Is For Everyone Skincare has always been labelled as what women do to look beautiful or stay young. Some people boycott skincare entirely to protest against these beliefs, but is it the right thing to do?

Indeed, skincare has been associated more with women’s beauty for a very long time. Just take a walk into any drug store or cosmetic beauty store, and you will see long aisles of shelves stocked with women’s skincare products, while there’s only like a tiny

Scars To My Beautiful: Two-Time Cancer Survivor Shares Self Love Journey

Sarah survived caner twice which left her surgical scars all over her body. Most of us won’t voluntarily want their body to be covered in scars, but we all might make some through accidents or surgeries, and they can stay on our skin for life. The question is, how to live with them instead of trying to get rid of them? Sarah Anderson Wright is a loving mother of two bubbly, beautiful children, with a baby coming along the way. On top of that, she is also a survivor. She fought cancer twice in te

Inside The Lifelong Battles With Eczema

“Your skin is always dry, it’s like you have your radiator on all the time, and it itches like you’ve been bitten by hundreds of mosquitoes, and there’s nothing you can do about it.” This is how she describes eczema to people who have never experienced or even heard of this condition. Veronica Lam, a 20-year-old Psychology student, has been living with eczema since she was a baby. During her primary school days, she would find her arms and legs dry in winter, and nothing couldn’t be fixed with a

Free warm meal for youth in Darnall through the winter months

A youth club in Darnall has been striving to provide free meals for young people throughout the winter months.

Darnall Education and Sports Academy (DESA) started this programme two weeks ago. The club has been giving out warm food to their members every week. These meals are often from different cultures, either made by restaurants or home cooked.

Kamran Din, 39, Managing Director of DESA believed more youth clubs should do the same to keep teenagers warm and safe.

He said: “If this is not a

Britain’s Lifeboat Visa Scheme to Rescue Hong Kong’s Youth: Successful or not?

Marcus Cheung, 22, came to the UK by himself about eight years ago to study in the Isle of Wight.

He loves watching the Premiere League, and enjoys going out for drinks with his mates during weekends like a British teen would do. He sees his future here, where he consider as his home besides Hong Kong, his actual hometown.

Despite spending more than one-third of his life in this country, he is yet to be a citizen.

About a year ago, the British government launched its lifeboat scheme, which is

How to do deal with burnouts during exam season

The mountain-high pile of lecture notes and endless deadlines could drain all our energy out of our bodies after a series of long revision sessions. Here are some tips to keep you motivated throughout exam season.

If you feel overwhelmed by the massive workload and wonder where to kick off, try breaking them down into smaller, more tangible tasks. Instead of creating vague, unreachable goals on your to-do list

Opinion: Drinking socials aren’t the best part of university life

“I’m not into club nights and bar crawls. Am I missing out on everything?” I used to constantly ask myself this question. I thought going to these events could get me to know more people, make more friends and relieve my anxiety once in a while. However, not missing out on anything didn’t make me any happier. Drunk socials aren’t always as delightful as I once believed.

Maybe a night out can get you to mingle with other people, but is it the only way to make friends? Being drunk doesn’t magical

Shoutout to my ex - thank you for teaching me self love

Breaking up with someone is never a fun experience. The moment you walk away from them, you’re all alone again. We might cry ourselves to sleep for a while, “accidentally” drunk dial them one lonely night, or we might start asking a lot of questions, doubting that if we made the wrong decision of leaving them.

Separating from your ex is not the end of the world. A failed relationship teaches us love –– how to love yourself.
