Six years in the non-profit world have perhaps toned Rucha down a few notches, from idealist to die-hard optimist, but there is no lowering her enthusiasm to help make the world a better place. Once having trouble saying anything in less than 140 minutes (much less 140 characters), Rucha is now putting her love for communication to good use to help get a maximum of media and social media talking about Earth Hour!
Ummi is a true blue Singaporean and the newest member of the Earth Hour team, having only joined in July this year. She manages the admin and finance aspect for Earth Hour and has as much passion for baking as she does for numbers.
Iris’s foray into the non-profit world began with Earth Hour after graduating from New York University, and spending more than 3 years in major PR agencies around the world like New York, Shanghai & Singapore. An overwhelming concern about the future of the planet has propelled Iris’s interest in climate change and there’s no better place to strive for a good cause than with Earth Hour. In her free time, she enjoys travelling, checking out new hotspots in the city, and watching Food Network - she has yet to master the art of cooking, but continues to try!
After graduating from NTU’s School of Communication and Information in Singapore, Vanessa spent a year at a Social Media Advertising agency before taking her first step into the NGO world at Earth Hour. Her interest in changing climate change has been growing ever since, and she hopes to make the planet a better place with the help of the digital space. To keep calm while managing Earth Hour's animated online community, Vanessa relies on an allegedly healthy dose of coffee and an endless feed of guinea pig pictures.
