On 2nd August 2015. I will be an invited panel speaker at an all-day public conference in HELP College of Arts and Technology. The conference theme is “Embracing Your Rhythm” and its purpose is to expose youths to different career paths of the road less travelled, so that they will better understand what they can possibly do and potentially be, by following their hearts, after graduating from school.

Have you ever wondered how did I become a motivational speaker? Who taught me to do that? Or how did I become a mental health helper? Which college did I earn my degree to do these things? In spite of being deaf and half blind?!? Haha! This event will be the place you get to hear my secret,

Tickets are going for RM50.00 per person. It allows you to attend the whole event from 9am to 6pm, lunch included! Proceeds from ticket sale go back to funding Youth Empowerment Programs for youngsters in foster homes.

More information can be found on the following page. Register yourselves too!
Embracing Your Rhythm – A career awareness talk and panel discussion

If you cannot make it for the event, do consider making a donation to help fund ongoing empowerment programs for the under-priviledged anyway. Thank you!


P:S: Yes, Works of Gratitude will be raising funds to build a Neurofibromatosis Foundation there too, so do come by our booth!

Yvonne Foong

As a child, Yvonne Foong dreamed of growing up to help others. To achieve her ambition, she began studying to become a psychologist. But things changed when tumours were discovered in her body at the age of sixteen. She was diagnosed with neurofibromatosis type 2 -- a genetic illness with no cure. Fighting for survival, Yvonne turned to fundraising and embarked on a medical odyssey to the United States. Her experiences since then have transformed her into a motivational speaker; inspiring hope, faith and strength. Yvonne is currently working to establish a humanitarian foundation that provides NF patients in Malaysia with financial and logistical support. Visit Works of Gratitude to learn more.
