James Chau – broadcaster, writer and UN Goodwill Ambassador.

1. My passport, which reminds me that travel and movement is always a privilege.

2. My copy of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights given to me by President Mary Robinson.

3. My water, because it is essential even though it is not available to all.

4. My MacBook, on which I am writing my first book

5. My speakers, because music makes me happy.
