Not important but quick to know what I do.

Lois Hong  |「Global Nomad. Family. Freedom. Love.」

 

“In my point of view, success means living out your true inner self. The mainstream authorities of old times curbed the unique inner brilliance of individuals. They ruled the game, and only those who followed the rules became winners. Nevertheless, I have always believed that everyone has a distinctive glow inside, which may differ in color but unleashes one’s inner unlimited power.”

Lois Hong was born in China and lived in Germany throughout her childhood. After completing the nine-year compulsory education in China, she left for New Zealand for further study, going back and forth between the two countries all year long.

As she was working on her degree at Auckland University in New Zealand, her family went through a tough period due to financial crisis, so that she had to apply for suspension of schooling, and that was when she began her lifelong self-discovery journey. She soon picked up herself by volunteer teaching in Tibet and Nepal, and Alpine climbing. 

 

She worked for Siemens after she went back to China, when she realised living a life of 9-5 struggling for promotion and pay raise doesn't feel right for her. She part-timely co-founded an internet start-up company and digital agency company, and later on she got approached by her previous boss to work together as business partners, to help overseas SMEs entering Chinese market.

Since 2014, she has gone back and forth between China and New Zealand for the reason of a love story. She helped developing urban cycling culture and bike-friendly environment with Bike Auckland Association. She also helped Auckland Transport with planning and reconstruction of city bike lanes in Auckland.

After a 6-month world trip gap in 2016, she gave up the leadership of her company and moved into the creative field of photography and filmmaking. She began to write articles and publish on her WeChat public account 「yingxiangzhongsheng」, which has reached more than 70,000 followers.

 

In 2018, while making a documentary project on homosexuality, she founded the first Chinese lgbt NPO in New Zealand with a group of Chinese lgbt fellows, and they helped developing a better environment for Chinese lgbt groups in New Zealand. From being as heterosexuality to homosexuality and then moved to bisexuality/undefined, she fully experienced "love is love, which has no boundaries, men or women".

 

In 2019, she started to live globally and put a greater focus on creative work. She began to train herself for Alpine climbing on mountains above 7000m in altitude and prepared herself for the challenge of the Mt. Everest summit.

 

 

红 |「一个有温度的流浪汉。向往自由,极简,与家人独居的生活。」

“我认为的成功,是活出自己内在喜欢的样子。旧时代的主流权威,抑制了每个人内在独有的那束光,他们制定了一系列规则,遵循规则的人们成为游戏赢家,掌控统一的光芒。而我一直坚信,每个人内在都有属于自己独特的光芒,颜色可能不一样,却有着无限能量。在多元化的当下,每个人都可以敢于绽放出属于自己的那束光,当每个人都发光了,世界就自然更明亮了。“

出生于中国,童年生活在德国,回国接受九年义务教育后,前往新西兰留学深造,常年往返中新两国。

本科就读于新西兰奥克兰大学及德国弗赖堡大学,后因家庭原因休学,前往西藏与尼泊尔支教,开始雪山攀岩。同期作为自由译者,参与德、中、英书籍翻译及编写。回国后受聘于Siemens,之后协助伙伴以及前上司,先后创办网络传媒公司、企业管理共创空间,为多家海外中小型企业提供品牌创意、网络平台搭建、以及初创管理服务

2014年起,因为一场爱情故事,常年往返于中新两国,与新西兰交通局共同创办新西兰城市骑行协会,参与推动奥克兰城市自行车道的规划与重建。2016年环球旅行后,退出公司管理层,向摄影及电影领域发展,从事文化创作,开启「映像众声」自媒体公众号平台,提出“真实的你就是最好的原创®”理念,关注者上万。2018年在拍摄一部同性爱人主题的纪录片时,联手一群同志伙伴,成立了新西兰第一个华人同志非盈利社群,推动了新西兰华人同志社群的发展。

在人生的前30年,她经历了一系列的自我探索路程。事业上,从顺应主流社会的价值体系,到追随自己的内心;情感上,从异性取向,到同性取向,到双性取向/不再定义自己,真正感悟到“爱不分性别,不分界限”;生活上,从做加法的财富积累,到不断做减法的极简生活。

2019年她将生活重心转移至旅居创作,接受7000米以上雪山攀岩的专业训练,挑战世界最高峰8848。
