Power to the people
Welcome to Prestige Hong Kong’s 40 under 40, our annual tribute to the city’s most sagacious and audacious young individuals from the world of arts, commerce, fashion, health, sport, hospitality, philanthropy and beyond.
2019 has been a special year for Hong Kong. Amid the unpredictability of protests and travel difficulties, we nonetheless managed to identify, interview and photograph 40 personalities – some established, others up-and-coming and all less than four decades old.
These exceptional individuals (and one couple) only reinforce our belief that Hong Kong remains a wonderful city, a place full of incredible talent and high achievers. We hope to celebrate these young heroes and heroines in this, our sixth consecutive compendium, and spread a little positivity during times of uncertainty.
If there’s one thing in particular that we can learn from this year’s 40 under 40, it’s that there’s no such thing as difficult times. Life is about resilience, and no matter how difficult the circumstances may be, a golden future awaits those who persevere.
So, dear readers, we hope you enjoy a glimpse into the lives of the young men and women who are proudly shaping the future of our beloved city.
