Wandering, taking photos, observing passers-by, writing about the people and Hong Kong-- it all started with a series of unfortunate family events that was hard for a 16-year-old to bear. Instead of returning home after hell-like Maths tutorial classes, Vanessa hopped onto random trams and hopped off whenever she wanted. She also once walked from Wanchai to Kennedy Town for fun and relaxation.
Seeing a lot of historic buildings and old urban districts being demolished or redeveloped, she mourns about them and is aware of heritage conservation in Hong Kong.
Vanessa is also multilingual. You can talk to her in German and French.
