An international serial entrepreneur, angel investor, motivational speaker, and communication coach, Didi Wong inspires others with her philanthropy and social impact. Didi was born in Hong Kong, grew up in England, and now lives in Los Angeles, but you can feel her impact worldwide. Because of her philanthropic and social impact work, Didi is being knighted to the Royal Order of Constantine the Great and St. Helen in the Spring/Summer of ‘21.
Why does someone get knighted?
Didi Wong: “To get knighted, you have to be recognized for the work you do for others in terms of inspiration, social impact, and dedication. I’m getting knighted because the Royal Order of St.Helen has recognized me for all the work I’ve done with entrepreneurs, women empowerment, different Foundations and my general willingness to do things to make the world a better place. For instance, I’m also a Goodwill Ambassador for Arts & Culture Without Borders, a United Nations Civil Society Organization. And I’m expected to get knighted in the Spring/Summer of 2021!
Can you explain what a Goodwill Ambassador does?
Didi Wong: A Goodwill Ambassador’s job is to inspire and impact the world and make it a better place by being a representative of creating impactful Art and Culture projects. Being a Goodwill Ambassador goes hand-in-hand with being knighted. It all stems from doing good in the world. Being asked to be a Goodwill Ambassador is on the same level as being knighted. I work hard to inspire people and spread joy and happiness through Arts and Culture worldwide. For instance, all the television and movie work I’m doing as an Executive Producer and Producer respectively gets me very involved in Arts and Culture, which really helps.
How does one get to be knighted?
Didi Wong: The simple answer is Philanthropy and social impact, but doing a lot of Public Relations work has helped me a lot. Here’s why…
Someone has to nominate you to get knighted. It’s not something you just get picked for.
All the PR work I’ve done, all the speaking engagements, podcasts, and other projects I’ve worked on lets me do my thing and get out in front of people. I didn’t know that all my work would help me get knighted one day, but it’s a pretty amazing bonus!
