Speaker Profile :

Pei Shan co-founded UglyFood, a social enterprise focused on food loss due to surplus and blemished fresh produce. She left UglyFood last year and now focuses on assisting businesses with food sustainability initiatives such as UglyDuck Cafe at Queenstown CC. She also started Food Warrior (@kindfoodwarrior) to continue her advocacy and train up food warriors.

Pei Shan uses Buddhist principles as her moral compass to initiate projects which are close to her heart. Other than food sustainability initiatives, she served as SMU Dhamma Circle President, organising committee in Singapore Buddhist Youth Day, and she’s currently heading TADAH (Together, All Dhamma At Home) to encourage buddhists to practise and cultivate habits of reading dhamma books.

About the Event :

This International Women's Day, we are really grateful to have the opportunity to invite Venerable nuns from 3 different traditions to join us as we bring the Buddhist community together to share gratitude to all women who have nurtured and touched our lives. We also hope that this can help build connection for our Dhamma sisters with the community of Venerable nuns as we share, cultivate and dedicate merits towards world peace.
