This issue we feature Ciga Long, who at a very early age chose his path in the field of jewelry design. After traveling across the world to get a formal Western education in Italy, he now caters to high end clients and celebrities across the world. Ciga’s style is a unique blend of Western technology and Chinese classical culture. He integrates his heritage into his designs, and infuses them with his independence and bold innovation. In light of his amazing achievements, Ciga Long continues to expand his talents as he looks beyond the clear horizon and to new opportunities open to him.
We’re also introducing you to Catherine Carty, who during her early life, learned about disabilities when her father lost a leg to bone cancer. Tragedy hit the family again a few years later when her brother also became disabled after a motorcycle accident at the age of 17, and had to remain at the hospital for a year before being discharged. Now as an adult, Catherine uses her experience to make a difference at The Institute of Technology Tralee in Ireland, where she is the manager of the UNESCO Chair in Inclusive Physical Education, Sport, Fitness and Recreation. Part of a larger team, she helps develop programs and research to aid disabled members of society achieve their goals by focusing in the areas of communication, research, advocacy, fund-finding, training and education.
