Chin Nana is a determined, selfless and kindhearted woman. Suzanne is proud to call her a personal friend and a friend of Shine. She has recently set up her own business in Otres Beach, selling holiday items, travel tickets and refreshments. After years of working for others, to support herself and her family, she has made her entrepreneurial dream come true.

Nana’s shop has only been open for a few weeks, yet she has already prioritised giving to her local community, purchasing school supplies and donating them to the children of Shine. Nana is an advocate for Shine, encouraging tourists to spread the word and support the project. She is having a range of Otres T-Shirts and Vests printed with the Shine logo on the back, donating an amount per shirt sold and helping the message travel the world.

Nana is a true inspiration. She is a role model for Shine’s students, showing what is possible with education, motivation and hard work.
