The daughter of Michael Ying and Flora Zeta Cheong-Leen, Claudine is the co-founder of the Bebegarten Group, as well as the Yanai Foundation, a non-profit organisation that helps build schools for underprivileged children throughout 18 provinces in China to date. She is also known for her impeccable style and is a mother of one.
She was named our Most Promising Young Lady of 2012—and she certainly hasn’t disappointed. Claudine was recently selected as one of five Women of Wonder for our recent project with Louis Vuitton. Inspired at a young age during a family trip to Inner Mongolia, she came to a realisation: “Improving the lives of others was the best possible vocation I could have.” Claudine’s passion for children’s education drives her Bebegarten Education Centre in Aberdeen, and she aims to open a second centre soon in Hainan. She is also involved in the Yanai Foundation, which provides 9 years of free education to underprivileged children on China. Today, they are in 18 different provinces and have built over 200 schools under the name Siyuan Experimental Schools.
