Entrepreneur; Best-selling Author, Speaker; Overall Winner Women Entrepreneur Of The Year 2000

From a fashion modelling career to starting her own business – ONE.99shop – which she grew into a $14 million-dollar business in just three years, Nanz is certainly deserving of the Overall Winner of the Women Entrepreneur of the Year Award from the Association of Small & Medium Enterprises (ASME) in 2000. Her personal experience of facing severe adversity and personal trials led her to publish three books and to speak at many events to encourage and advise entrepreneurs.

Founder, Keeping Hope Alive; Great Women Of Our Time 2016, Education & Public Service nominee

In 2012, Fion, a self-made club membership broker from humble beginnings, donated 50 branded bags in exchange for sacks of rice for the needy. Fion has always had a heart for the needy, and had felt troubled by the thought of the poor struggling silently behind closed doors. This deep desire to help them led the mother-of-one to start Keeping Hope Alive 16 years ago. Fion and her team of volunteers have been actively helping needy families and elderly folks, and last year, her contributions were commended as she received the President’s Volunteerism and Philanthropy Award.
