**More On Alice**

Alice Min Soo Chun, founder of Solight Design. Alice’s story is of an inspiring inventor, entrepreneur and former Columbia University professor who created portable, origami-inspired, solar lights to help with refugee missions, and so much more.
 
The story begins with Alice’s biggest passion — being a mom to her son, Quinn. At a young age, Quinn was diagnosed with asthma. After the diagnosis, they spent countless amounts of time in doctors’ offices. Through the time and effort that Alice put into understanding her son’s diagnosis, she was shocked to discover that one of four kids in New York City has asthma. This sparked the question — what kind of toxic environment do we live in? 
 
Soon after, the 2010 Haiti earthquake rocked the country and sent 2.6B people scrambling without access to electricity. Alice was touched by the turmoil the Haitians were experiencing along with other staggering statistics such as: millions of children and their families affected by poor air quality; According to the World Health Organization, roughly 3.8 million people a year die from toxic kerosene fumes. 100K preventable dwelling fires in South Africa; a rise in women and children assaulted due to poorly lit areas and loss of light after a natural disaster. Reportedly, having a light in tent camps created a 20% decrease in assault cases. 
 
Alice was moved to make an impact, thus SolarPuff, an award-winning, easy-to-use solar light was created under Alice’s new venture, Solight Design.
 
As a former Columbia University professor focusing on material technology and sustainable design/architecture, Alice brought SolarPuff to fruition. SolarPuff is a self-inflating, waterproof, solar light made from non-toxic, recyclable, hi-tech materials inspired by origami design. The light keeps its shape even when punctured and recharges in the sun lasting up to 12 hours — which is why the light can also be great for refugee missions
