Meet One Of Hong Kong’s Youngest CEO – Bailey Cherry!

Rebooked

Bailey Cherry

At first glance, Bailey, a student of Canadian Int’l School of Hong Kong is your regular high schooler, who enjoys hanging out with friends, listening to music and playing basketball.
But she isn’t your typical teenager because this 15 year-old also happens to be the CEO and founder of ‘re-Booked’ – Hong Kong’s largest online bookshop for secondhand books!

𝑭𝒐𝒓 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒍𝒐𝒗𝒆 𝒐𝒇 𝒓𝒆𝒂𝒅𝒊𝒏𝒈…
📚 It all started in early 2019 when Bailey realized that her family had accumulated a lot of books over the years.
📖 Bailey’s passion for reading prompted her to pass on the books that she had outgrown to other young readers.
📚 She realized then, that Hong Kong didn’t have a convenient platform to donate and reuse pre-loved children’s books.
📖 Bailey saw an opportunity, so in the middle of 2019, Bailey launched “reBooked”, a non-profit social enterprise that aims to promote sustainability in literacy.
