Chili Padi was the key thing that kick started Ethel’s environmental journey back in 2019, and since then she’s grown to take on leadership positions in steering and guiding the team. Other than environmental issues, Ethel is also passionate about and has advocated for a range of social issues, with gender equality being particularly close to her heart.
