My Dream for Change

Doris Leung with her Diamond Cab

Doris Leung 梁淑儀MJ 2003

By Doris Leung

 

From TV journalist to social entrepreneur, I have made an extraordinary journey for a trained journalist. After graduating with a Master of Journalism, I remained at i-Cable News as a Principal Reporter for 16 years until 2009. The unexpected disability of my beloved mum in 2007 inspired me to start the unprecedented barrier-free taxi service, Diamond Cab, in Hong Kong in 2011.

 

Up to April 2016, Diamond Cab has successfully accomplished more than 100,000 advance bookings, mainly for wheelchair passengers. Wanting to take the service beyond just transportation, I initiated the “Diamond Leisure” and other Diamond Events to advocate the importance of barrier-free access for the elderly and to create a culture of happy aging in Hong Kong.
