The Shanghai Sunrise Team
Meet Lillian, our volunteer Executive Director at the helm of the Shanghai Sunrise volunteer team. Lillian has over 20 years of working experience for global companies and a strong ability to work with people from different cultures. She has been volunteering with Shanghai Sunrise since 2010. When she is not organizing fundraising events, field visits, merchandise sales, students programs, etc., she will spend time on salsa dancing, working out and teaching business related training courses.
Meet Kelly, our Sponsors Relations Executive and resident adventurer. By day, Kelly is hard at work spreading the word about sponsoring education for a brighter future, but when she’s off the clock, Kelly could be anywhere from rollercoasters at Disneyland to cruise ships in Japan!
Meet Yulia, our volunteer Sponsor Relations Manager. Yulia, originally from Russia, has been living in China for 11 years and currently combines volunteering at Shanghai Sunrise with working on her Master’s degree in Business & Organizational Psychology.
Meet Karin, our volunteer Community Events Manager. When Karin's not busy organizing our community events to support Shanghai Sunrise's fundraising and merchandise sales, you'll find her learning Mandarin, watching Chinese films, and playing Mahjong!
Meet Rita, our volunteer Project Manager who supports events and organization strategic planning. Rita, owner of OE2 Consulting, is originally from upstate NY in the US. After moving to China in 2018 Rita is excited to be involved with Shanghai Sunrise.
Meet Veronika, our volunteer Events Manager. With a wealth of knowledge in all things logistics and with her great, hands-on mentality, Veronika plays a key role in the success of our events. When she's not busy organizing events, you'll find her dancing to 80s New Wave and adventure-seeking throughout Asia!
Meet Sophy, our volunteer Student Program Director. She explores and implements new and better ways to help Shanghai Sunrise's students. When she is not busy helping our students, you can find her skiing or studying Spanish conjugation as she tries to master yet another language.
