About the Book

Award-winning television actress and host, Belinda Lee, travels the world in the course of her work. Along the way the bilingual thespian meets many inspiring individuals who are larger than life, not only because they have the heart of giants, but because they have risen above the things that could have weighed them down — poverty, timidity, disability — in order to fulfill their life’s purpose.

This collection of heart-warming stories introduces readers to some of the amazing people she meets on her travels — people who celebrate the human spirit and restore your faith in the good of humanity.

“This book will expand your capacity to love, to dream, to endure
and to find peace in all circumstances. If you don’t receive a miracle,
you can still be a miracle for someone else.”

— Ignatius Ho, Vice-President, Life Without Limbs, Greater China

“Books are food for the soul and in this particular one
Belinda speaks for the people and places she’s seen and
they are able to tell their stories through her.”

— Utt Panichkul, Regional Artiste/Entrepreneur

“Singapore’s most beloved travel host, Belinda Lee, is not afraid
to get her hands dirty and dives headfirst into unimaginable places.
The result is a heartfelt read from start to finish. Bravo!”

— Leon Jay Williams, Regional Artiste
