Echo Li-Doward graduated from the University of Salford with an MSc in e-Governance. After graduation, she started work at a Housing Association for Chinese and BME communities, which has been in partnership with the Wai Yin Society since its creation. She has great knowledge and experience in social housing and community based projects. Throughout her time working with the BME community, she has become more familiar with Wai Yin and the great work that this organisation does for members of the community.
She believes that individual transformation leads to community transformation. Understanding the role that Wai Yin fulfils, how helping people in need to change their lives, and in turn changing the communities in which they live, is a great challenge. To achieve this successfully, as a trustee, with Wai Yin is a powerful motivation for her.
