Sienna attends an international school in Hong Kong ‘International Montessori School’. She is a keen hiker, gymnast, and swimmer. Apart from her hobbies, she has been actively engaged in community service. She learned to give back to others. From such an early age, she learns to be kindness, compassion, and respect -internal strength that connects her to others.

Sienna along with her father has been raising funds through sponsorship and will donate all funds raised to the charity they support called “Mother’s Choice” based in Hong Kong. She has set an example that age is not the factor as far as you have a deep passion in your interest and commitment in serving the community.

Since our foundation in 1998, we have arranged numerous such treks for solo, senior citizen, family with children, and school trekking enthusiasts. However, organizing a trek for a family with such young kids was the first time. Sienna is the first to set the record of the youngest trekkers to the base camp with us.
