My name is Yang-May Ooi. I’m a writer, speaker and creative actionista.
This is what I’m all about:
Wild Creativity – I’ve always been a dreamer and I’m inspired by dreamers who can harness their wild creativity. Steve Jobs, for example, whose dream of a thousand songs in your pocket created the iPod. Cheryl Strayed, whose idea to hike the Pacific Coast Trail alone led to a bestseller that inspired millions of women. And less lofty folk like you and me whose wild creativity can bring something different, new or unexpected in the world we live in – art, books, social change… and more.
True Purpose – when I live true to my purpose, I can deal with any difficulty and face any challenge. I am fascinated by how this powerful force that guides each of us – whether it is to build a just society, create magnificent art or, simply, make a good life. How can we find our individual and unique purpose? How can we live our purpose – right now, today, tomorrow and into the future?
Bod Action – without action, my dreams remain unrealised, my ideas stay no more than ideas. But when I take bold action – then thing begin to change, my dreams become reality. I love learning from others, too, how they turn their creative ideas into action. How does someone change their life or make a difference? What step by step things do we need to do to actually achieve our dreams?
I call these my Tiger Spirit Values.
My purpose is to explore and share these Tiger Spirit Values –
- through my books, theatre piece and other creative projects, and
- by championing and supporting others in their creativity, purpose and action.
