In this series of articles we take a look back at previous winners of the annual Martell VSOP Rising Personalities Awards. We start by getting to know 2008 winner, professional violinist and lecturer, Joanne Yeoh.

Joanne Yeoh started her music education at the tender age of four and has never turned back since. Her natural talent was a real blessing and her skill was quickly noticed by being selected as the solo violinist for Jacky Cheung’s World Tour. Following that, David Tao, a Taiwanese singer handpicked her to join him on his tour.

Being steadfast, having perseverance and willingness to accept advice from people have helped her come a long way. Rise Above to her is not just being able to handle what life brings but also to surpass people’s expectations.
