Lilian is an architecture graduate turned social entrepreneur, founder of Fourth World Art, and one of the University of Edinburgh’s chaplains.


She was born in Hong Kong, raised in Singapore, and has lived in Scotland for the last 20 years. She studied at the University of Edinburgh (Architecture MA & MArch and MBA) so has had first-hand experiences of what it means to be an international student. She is able to speak Mandarin and Cantonese.


Lilian has been working as the Lay Chaplain at the Catholic Chaplaincy since 2015 and was a volunteer listener for the Listening Service since 2017. As a student she took part in the Catholic chaplaincy life and that experience made her realise that she had a passion for supporting students to make the best of their university experience and to be a listening ear when they are facing all sorts of challenges.
