Galy Leung is from Hong Kong. She came to England to study when she was 19, and stayed with a relative's family in Forest Gate in East London. She helped out with the family's laundry shop in her spare time. She was told that her relative was once a sailor, and that after coming to England he started his own laundry shop. After 3 years, she found a job in a garment factory and became a seamstress, sewing clothing templates. Later, she started her own take-out restaurant. Galy Leung is now retired, and is very active in the Chinese community centres, taking part in all kinds of cultural and social activities.
