Maya Tong grew up in Hong Kong, China. Maya obtained a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of London, United Kingdom. Maya has always been curious about abstract sciences even from her childhood. As a teenager, Maya self-studied about Four Pillars of Destiny (Bazi) and Feng Shui from books and notes left behind by her grandfather who learned from prominent maters in mainland China in the early 1900s. Maya met her mentoring teacher Andrew Chan who opened up new horizons and deepened her understanding and knowledge in different areas of Chinese metaphysics after returning to Hong Kong from studying and working overseas.
