Andy Lau

“Winning the #WorldsCoolestJob makes me feel that I am in control of my life; that I am doing something that is, finally, solely the result of what I wanted for myself. I can finally call what I’m doing my own. This is something special that I’m doing, and I ‘made it’ myself. I want it to be a testament to people who are afraid to go after their dreams; that if they had believed and acted, albeit with uncertainty, they could own something truly theirs too. Otherwise, it will always remain being a dream.”

Danielle Lim

“Winning this means the world to me and this would be such a hallmark moment for my life. I’m ending my one year journey of freelancing and will soon be entering corporate world, so this would be a fantastic BANG to end this chapter of my life. But most importantly, being part of this amazing campaign to show the heart of the company would be the highlight of my life thus far, as nothing I’ve experienced will come close to this.”
