In her speech, Lee said this was the first corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative carried out by her academy.

“We hope to be able to help the less fortunate people in the community, which is a way of giving  back to society in line with our company motto of ‘Touching Hearts, Moulding Lives’,” she said.
