One of Davina’s life priorities is empowering others through compassion. She is actively involved in environmental, animal and social causes, being an ambassador for Shark Savers Malaysia, taking part in peaceful demonstrations by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and History Channel’s #BuyOutSlavery Campaign, and volunteering for Greenpeace.
In 2016, Davina organized her own campaign ‘Davina’s Epic Swimathon Challenge’, where she successfully crowdfunded over RM23,000 for marine conservation through her participation in the Raleigh Round Island Challenge, where she and her teammates swam and kayaked 18 kilometres around Perhentian Island.
Davina’s colourful career and personality has attracted collaborations with various brands like Levi’s, Converse, Shiseido, Fitness First Malaysia, Shopee, and Nestle La Cremeria and her latest with PurelyB and Spoon Health as a Vegan Chef.
Her background in performing arts encourages brands to personify their message through her wholesome image. As she steps into becoming a visible personality for conscious living and plant-based lifestyles, we can see the potential opportunities on the horizon. In this capacity, she also shares and speaks on many of these topics.
Some of her speaking experience includes:

• Berjaya’s Founder’s Day 2015
