REASONS FOR WORKING AT THE SPCA (HK)
I like travelling and meeting new people. In working for the SPCA I get the opportunity to work in a challenging environment, whilst improving my skills and taking part in animal welfare. Living in another country also gives me the chance to gain an insight into a different culture. Hong Kong provides a vibrant city life but also gives the chance to explore nature.
Toulouse (who has only three legs due to an accident) and Priscilla; two very naughty rescue cats that I fostered before adopting.
Acting, painting and travelling.
