We know what you're thinking. So how exactly do you pronounce Leiho? Here’s how we say it and what the meaning behind the name is.
Leiho means 'how are you' in Cantonese and sometimes that's all we need to ask someone to show that we care.
MEET THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE BRAND
Joey Li - CEO & Co-Founder
We often get caught up in our busy lives and forget to be kind to ourselves or take time off to do something good for someone else. You feel good when you do good and when we do good, it’s all of our kindness and compassion put together that really makes a positive difference in the world. I hope Leiho inspires people to deliver more acts of kindness because at the end of the day, we're not only helping someone in need but we're actually improving our own wellbeing and self worth too.
Thuta Khin - COO & Co-Founder
Originally from Myanmar, I’ve had experience in working with NGOs to fight poverty in underdeveloped regions. I believe that there is room for everyone to make a difference in this world with a simple act of kindness, no matter how big or small. Through Leiho, I hope to inspire people to be creative in the way they give back to their local communities!
Camille Lacassagne - Junior Marketing & Communications Executive
I’m so grateful for the opportunities Leiho gives me. Everyone has been so welcoming and sweet to me. I really feel part of the team!Knowing that you can make a difference in so many people’s lives is empowering!Doing what I love is one thing, but knowing that on top of that I can have a positive impact on people’s lives is amazing!Working at Leiho inspires me a lot. Upon graduating, I would like to create my own business, and Leiho makes me want to continue helping people through it.
Abigail Wood - Volunteer (Senior Lyrical Whiz)
I have been working with Leiho on a voluntary basis supporting their marketing content, campaigns and copy writing since April 2021 and it’s been non stop wholesome, feel good fun and laughter! I have always felt a strong connection to wanting to contribute to the community and supporting those experiencing homeless, whenever I have had the opportunity to fundraise this has always been my priority. Pairing up with Leiho and having a secondary outlet to my corporate role felt like finding my start-up sole-mate. Pun absolutely intended!!I hope to continue to use my marketing skills that I have nurtured throughout my professional career with Global Brands and adapt them to support Leiho to spread their incredible mission far and wide. Doing good one step at a time! (With all these puns it’s no wonder they call me the ‘Lyrical Whizz’!)
