Every year, Lenovo selects a group of inspiring people from around the world to be Lenovo Innovators. Whether they’re starting their own business that brings beehives to corporate offices, diving with the world’s largest sharks, vlogging for animal rights from their motorcycle or blurring the lines between art and cooking, Lenovo’s latest class of innovators have inspiring stories to share.
Vishakha Fulsunge is a MotoVlogger and gamer who is using technology and motorsports to bring awareness to animal treatment in India.
“My love for animals runs so deep that it’s even gotten me in a couple of dangerous situations. During one of my trips, I rescued a puppy while fighting 11 intoxicated men that happened to be extending a knife in my direction. They were playing catch n’ throw with that 25-day-old, injured puppy. Without hesitation, I ran toward them and snatched the puppy, bringing it to safety. It was raining, so I covered it with my raincoat, hopped on my bike and drove off as quickly as possible. I’m proud to say I saved both our lives that day, and the puppy has since been adopted.”

Leigh-Kathryn Bonner is the founded of Bee Downtown, an American company that installs and maintains beehives on corporate campuses while simultaneously providing year-round employee engagement and leadership development programming to many of America’s leading corporations.
“Nature is the foundation of our planet; it was here before us and will be here long after us. Species in our natural world have adapted and advanced over the years to remain successful on our planet. If we slow down long enough to experience and explore nature, it is surprising how inspiring our planet can be.”
Feeling the need to give back from a young age, Gádor Muntaner became a marine scientist with a special interest in sharks.
The best gift we can give ourselves is to dedicate our lives to what we find passion in, regardless of what that may be. When we do what we love, we achieve tremendous results that leave behind a better world than the one we found.
