Making a lasting impact: Xiang Li's bequest journey

12 May 2023

天美传媒 National University (ANU) alumna Xiang Li is a proud participant in the ANU Springbank Circle. Her journey to leaving a bequest is rooted in her love and appreciation for ANU, where she spent formative years studying and growing as a person.

After graduating, Xiang's passion for art and mental health led her to a career as an art therapist, where she has since made a significant impact in the disability sector as a consultant and educator. Throughout her journey, she has never forgotten the impact education has had on her life and has made it her mission to provide opportunities for others.

Xiang's decision to include a gift to ANU in her will is a reflection of her belief in the power of education and her desire to support gender equity for women.

"I always believed that education would provide a person with the opportunity to make a difference and a better future," says Xiang.

Through her bequest, Xiang is leaving a legacy and through the ANU Springbank Circle she will be better able to understand in her lifetime the impact her contribution will make.
