Our Team


Founder and Director of Blessings in a Bag, Emily Teng, launched the project in 2007 after a life-long desire to take action and make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate. She has worked for local media company, Mediacorp, as a Producer/Presenter (Radio DJ) at 987fm for 5 years and currently works as a Producer/Presenter (Radio DJ) at Power98 FM.

Emily counts Singapore as her home even though the first 8 years of her childhood were spent in Jakarta, Indonesia.  While there, she saw for herself the large disparity between those who ‘have’ and those who ‘have-not’.  The later parts of her life were spent in Melbourne, Australia and eventually landing in Singapore.  It was in Australia that she discovered her passion for making a difference to the community when she took part in volunteer programs set up by her school, Methodist Ladies’ College.

What started out as a small project run out of her own wardrobe, quickly turned into a motivation for action.  And though the organisation is considered ‘young’, Emily and the BIAB team strongly believe that they are making a big difference in many lives across Asia.
