Special guest: Adrian Pang
Propelled by her six-year struggle with Sebastien, her 20-year-old autistic son, and his aggressive outbursts, Ms. Choo Kah Ying set out on an extraordinary quest to find an answer for his future.
In a no-holds-barred dialogue with actor Adrian Pang, Kah Ying will reveal how Sebastien pushed her towards radical acceptance of his autistic nature and led her to forge an independent life for him in Bali.
Sebastien’s life in a tranquil home, surrounded by rice paddies, supported by a “village” — carefully-assembled team of carers, as well the staff of Sari Hati School for special needs individuals — offers a glimpse into her vision for A Mother's Wish (AMW).
It is Kah Ying's dream to leave behind self-sustaining communities that can support and empower Sebastien and others like him in their pursuit of a meaningful life of dignity, long after parents have passed on.
Join us to learn about AMW’s projects and see how you can do your part to make the world a better place for EVERYONE!
