Ambassador Juliana Kung is a bipolar artist studying for a BA in Social Work at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU). She views art as a way of connecting with her inner hero, helping her release her bottled stress and appreciate her vitality and strength. Juliana attended Sha Tin Tseung Tsin Secondary School where she first discovered her talent for art and was encouraged to be an artist. A devout Christian, Juliana’s motto is from 2 Corithians 12:9: “My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect by weakness”. When she’s not studying or drawing, Juliana works in a nursing home for the elderly in Tai Kok Tsui. Juliana created Home Kong Kitchen‘s stunning emblem!
Juliana believes the path to recovery from mental illness is never easy. It is filled with uncertainty, a labyrinth of ups and downs. Embarking on the path requires harmonious relationships between different social and environmental factors, including friends, family, workplace and community. Juliana’s devotion to using art to address important social issues drew her to Mental Ideas and we cannot wait to work with her on a range of art therapy projects!
