President Barack Obama

Few presidents have walked a more improbable path to the White House.  Born in Hawaii to a mother from Kansas and a father from Kenya, Obama was raised with help from his grandparents, whose generosity of spirit reflected their Midwestern roots.  The homespun values they instilled in him, paired with his innate sense of optimism, compelled Obama to devote his life to giving every child, regardless of his or her background, the same chance America gave him.

After working his way through college with the help of scholarships and student loans, Obama moved to Chicago, where he worked with a group of churches to help rebuild communities devastated by the closure of local steel plants.  That experience honed his belief in the power of uniting ordinary people around a politics of purpose, in the hard work of citizenship, to bring about positive change.  In law school, he became the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, then he returned to Illinois to teach constitutional law at the University of Chicago and begin a career in public service, winning seats in the Illinois State Senate and the United States Senate.

On November 4, 2008, Barack Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States, winning more votes than any candidate in history.  He took office at a moment of crisis unlike any America had seen in decades – a nation at war, a planet in peril, the American Dream itself threatened by the worst economic calamity since the Great Depression.  And yet, despite all manner of political obstruction, Obama’s leadership helped rescue the economy, revitalize the American auto industry, reform the health care system to cover another twenty million Americans, and put the country on a firm course to a clean energy future – all while overseeing the longest stretch of job creation in American history.  On the world stage, Obama’s belief in America’s indispensable leadership and strong, principled diplomacy helped wind down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, decimate al Qaeda and eliminate the world’s most wanted terrorists, shut down Iran’s nuclear weapons program, open up a new chapter with the people of Cuba, and unite humanity in coordinated action to combat a changing climate.

In times of great challenge and change, President Obama’s leadership ushered in a stronger economy, a more equal society, a nation more secure at home and more respected around the world.  The Obama years were ones in which more people not only began to see themselves in the changing face of America, but to see America the way he always has – as the only place on Earth where so many of our stories could even be possible.

Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, are the proud parents of two daughters – Malia, 21, and Sasha, 18.

While she has been at the forefront of Telkomsel’s push toward personalization and digital transformation, shown by the achievement of MyTelkomsel mobile app with 32 million monthly active users, Goh is now aiming to set the provider apart by way of its 5G services and its foray into video streaming and mobile games. 

Telkomsel’s video streaming platform, MaxStream, has become one of the go to platform to enjoy not only its original video content but also the contents from other video OTTs such as Disney+, Amazon Prime, HBO Go, Viu and Vidio. Under Goh’s leadership, Telkomsel had also strengthened its footprint in mobile gaming industry by developing community-based platform for mobile gaming called Dunia Games, publishing five of its own mobile games and organizing several esports tournaments regularly. Earlier this year, the brand announced a partnership with the national-level Dunia Games League, which routinely attracts millions of Indonesian gamers and streamers. 

And of course, like most brands that managed to stay relevant during the pandemic, Telkomsel amplified its purpose by rallying the country’s spirit of community and resilience. In the #DiRumahTerusMaju Ramadan campaign, Goh and her team used themes of empowerment, entrepreneurship and connection to convey the brand’s role as many Muslims observed the holy month away from their families. The campaign resulted in over 20% more app downloads and a 200% increase in active users.

Setting up new businesses and revenue streams is my passion and I have been doing that for last 15 years in 5 different countries.

Initially coming to study at the Hong Kong campus for just 1 semester, she found herself enchanted by the great city and all it had to offer. To be able to stay after her schooling, she jumped into a teaching position which soon led to a manager role within the small school. Though she enjoyed working with children and educators, she knew it was not her calling. She went back and forth between working in education and events many times in her career, working with her now business partner and the founder of Women of Hong Kong, Sarah, each time she left education. Finally, she reached out to Sarah one more time as Sarah was beginning to create the new platform for the community. She is very proud of her decision to take a chance to join Sarah once more.. She is now the chief operating officer and partnership director for Women of Hong Kong, which she considers the most important role of her life.

The idea for “Women of Hong Kong” was born in 2014, when Sarah created a network called "Girls of Hong Kong”, a tight-knit community that provided a safe space for women with networking and support through social events and common beliefs. By 2019, the “Girls of Hong Kong” grew to over 3000 members with over 200 active daily contributors on a social platform app.

Today, 7 years later, Sarah works with business partner Jessie Drew to launch the “Women of Hong Kong”, a digital platform set to revolutionise the lives of its members. Whether you are a parent, an entrepreneur, or executive, Women of Hong Kong will be the bridge that brings women together with the common belief that we are stronger together—and that it doesn’t have to be lonely at the top.

Women are revolutionising the world, and this network will pave the way. Through events, courses and conversations, Women of Hong Kong will challenge women to reach their highest potential and step into their power in every aspect of their lives: physically, emotionally and professionally.
