Not all heroes wear capes—some of them wear stilettos while conquering the world.
When Lisa Crosswhite, founder of Chi Chi Von Tang, set out to design her anime-inspired collection, she sought inspiration from 'everyday' super heros—real women, making huge waves in their respective communities.
Here's what 9 different strong women have to say about what makes one (and them) a real life hero.
“A girl who knows the power of her flames.”
Rosalyn Lee, radio DJ
“Being a voice to create environmental awareness.”
- Liv Lo, host and eco-advocate
“Being an 'all-in-one woman'. Also, juggling a.k.a multi-tasking!”
- Dr. Jade Kua, paediatric emergency specialist
“God gives me the supernatural strength to be a mum to three boys, while being an entrepreneur, doctor, travel writer, and running social enterprise Crib.”
“To be completely and unapologetically yourself. Never shy away from who you are”
- Hanli Hoefer, MTV VJ
