"The teaching approach combined flexibility with discipline, providing me with the creative freedom to break through boundaries!"
As Chief Designer of Ford Motor Company and named by AutoWeek magazine as “one of the top ten secret people who will change your world”, Chelsia successfully distinguishes herself in the male-dominated car industry and in the Western world.
According to Chelsia, "No matter what your profession is, passion and determination are equally important; otherwise you will easily give up when facing difficulties and obstacles".
After graduating from Lee Wai Lee Technical Institute in 1987, Chelsia continued her studies at the Art Centre College of Design in Pasadena, California. In 1992, she joined Ford Motor Company as Junior Designer and within just eight years she was promoted to Chief Designer.
Chelsia's advice for young design students in Hong Kong is that "language proficiency is important in building up a career in design. It is crucial for effective communication with others and enhances work efficiency".
