Who is on This Year’s Annual List of Lifestyle Asia Game Changers?

  • July 4, 2018

Every year, Lifestyle Asia releases a list of 30 millennials who are changing the game. They are a new generation of power players—citizens filled with the ethos of hard work, boundless enthusiasm and the idealism of the young. Shooting for this year’s list began on December of last year. The team was up to the challenge of gathering these movers and shakers into our studio, photographing each of them, before picking their minds through intimate interviews. This tradition has lived on, and we are proud to present you with a new group of inspiring individuals.

Kaia Gerber, the daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford and billionaire Randee Gerber, headlines the list of 30. The young woman graces our July 2018 Issue, titled The Millennial Issue. She is following the footsteps of her mother, taking the fashion world by storm. Her latest triumph was being named the new face for OMEGA’s Tresor collection. Lifestyle Asia was at the launch in Berlin, where we scored an exclusive interview with her. But who else is on the list?

To match Kaia’s influence, but this time in the Philippine setting, 30 young people were deliberated on and chosen for the Class of 2018. Before releasing the complete list, we thought we’d give you a little teaser. Can you guess who they are?
