For the first of our Women Who Inspire Us series, we’d like to feature Lindy Tsang. She’s a Chinese-Irish Youtuber better known as Bubzbeauty, a beauty guru with almost 3 million followers on her main channel. She’s also fondly called Bubz by her followers. Tsang started Bubzbeauty back in 2008 when she was struggling to find a job after graduating from university. With her entrepreneurial spirit, Tsang began printing and selling her own T-shirt designs. During this time, she took the leap and moved to Hong Kong to be closer to her manufacturers. She expanded her business to also sell makeup brushes. Most recently, Tsang has collaborated with BH Cosmetics to design a versatile eyeshadow palette called Be… by Bubzbeauty.
Not only is Tsang successful career-wise, but she’s a great mom (and you can keep up with her cute two-year old Isaac, her husband Tim, their two dogs, and Tsang herself through her vlogs on her vlog channel, Bubzvlogz). In addition, Tsang has utilized her huge following to raise money to build schools in countries such as Laos through Pencils of Promise. She raised thousands of dollars in 2015 to build a school and a preschool in Laos which she has since visited (and vlogged about) and Tsang has pledged to have another Pencils of Promise campaign in 2016 to build schools in Ghana.
Even with all this success, Tsang remains humble and grounded and she never forgets her fans who have supported her all these years.
Stay tuned for our next Women Who Inspire Us post!
