This January, community manager Candy Yang was invited to hold BUTTER 17 at the third annual Make A Difference youth workshop in Hong Kong. MaD is all about inspiring and empowering Asian youth, and we were honored for the invite.
80 young people signed up to participate, and this time, they were all speakers. We divided youth into different groups, so everyone could share their stories about on the theme of ‘change’ (like what’s the biggest change in last year? What’s your aspirational change in the coming year?’) All the participants were encouraged to make friends, exchanging gifts and planning to exchange more if they realize their dreams in the coming year.
Check out the video below for some of the dreams that were shared (quite a few are in English too). In the future, we hope Butter can continue to spread, and help more youth realize their dreams!
