Our mission is to help reduce suffering in New York and spread the movement to the world. We want to help those sacrificing for their loved ones and others. During this pandemic, the ones that come to mind are the Healthcare Heroes and Essential Workers. This is the remake of the 1985 USA For Africa “We are the World” by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie. The Phung sisters (Amelie and Alexandra, 12 and 8 years old , respectively) were inspired to remake the song for children who are not as blessed as they are. The sisters go to school in East Harlem, one of the poorest neighborhoods in New York City. As competitive golfers, the sisters are fortunate to visit and meet amazing people all over the world. They hope to do their part and help those suffering.
During this pandemic, we hope to reach out to many and warm their hearts with the “wearetheworldchallenge.” Our only hope is to put a smile on everyone’s face.
Growing up as Golf sisters
Amelie and Alexandra grew up in Queens, NY. However, they spend most of their time in school at TAG Young Scholars. This G&T school epitomizes the multicultural diversity NYC has to offer. If they are not in school, they are on a golf course, playing or instructing chess, or working on STEM-related projects.
It is not easy being in the same sport, but it has its advantages and disadvantages. There is always the competitive side where one strives to “out-do” the other. Nevertheless, they understand each other’s weaknesses and are able to help each other in time of need. They are fortunate enough to be able to travel to different parts of the U.S. and internationally to compete in golf. They have made amazing friendships worldwide expanding to United Kingdom, Germany, Scotland, Brazil, Italy, France, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Japan, and Taiwan.
