Roslyn Gay, the 101st person I’ve met on my quest to have lunch with 500 strangers, believes in counting her blessings rather her sacrifices.

Ros is an incredibly driven woman who routinely works seven-day weeks, so it would be easy to focus on what she’s missing.

But instead she thinks about all the people she’s able to help, and the pleasure she gets from being a servant leader.

Ros, who is from Singapore, has a long-term goal of becoming financially independent, so she can start an orphanage.

In the meantime, her company, Brand Connexxion, which she co-founded in 2010, is doing a lot of good.

Brand Connexxion provides expert assistance for companies that want to fund orphanages and other development projects in Africa and Asia. Brand Connexxion also runs a medical centre in Singapore for local patients and medical tourists.

Ros is a high achiever. When she was young, she played the zhongruan (a Chinese stringed instrument) at an elite level, winning international competitions. When she was 18, she opened a cafe/bar on one of Singapore’s main streets, using money she’d saved from music lessons. Later, she moved to London to complete a law degree.
