Xyza Cruz Bacani

This is one story that truly inspires. Xyza started as a migrant worker (a domestic helper) in Hong Kong and is now an internationally acclaimed photographer. On her days off, she’d traverse the city, snapping photos with her camera. This simple hobby soon launched her now unstoppable career. She is a freelance visual storyteller who has been recognised by the BBC 100 Women of the World and Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia. She is a FujiFilm Ambassador and a grantee of the Pulitzer Centre. Xyza constantly strives to document underreported news and showcase real life experiences through her artistic eye. Having been featured in The New York Times, Time, CNN, and multiple other media outlets, we can only imagine what else the future has in store for this talent.

Her legacy: Visual storytelling at its finest. “I hope that I am able to inspire people to try their best to break through barriers, despite their backgrounds, or where they are from.”
