Scientology Network’s VOICES FOR HUMANITY features Kim Bey and her work to improve the quality of life and reduce crime in Washington, D.C. It airs Wednesday, September 27, at 8 p.m. ET/PT
A petite Malaysian-American entrepreneur, Kim Bey was vexed by the soaring crime rate in Washington, D.C. She decided to do something about it. And she did. See how she created change in the nation’s capital in this week’s featured episode of Voices for Humanity on the Scientology Network.
Kim Bey has always defied the odds. Growing up in a poor family of eight siblings in rural Malaysia, she dreamed of transforming her life by going to college in America. She began her journey, becoming one of the first two girls from her village to attend high school. She not only graduated, she applied, was accepted and graduated from a college in America. Completing her degree, she settled in Washington, D.C., married, had two children, and started her own business. Bey was living her dream.
But as she looked around her, she was deeply troubled. So many people were hopeless about failed relationships, and the nation’s capital was wracked by poverty and crime.
“America has given me the beautiful life I have,” she thought. “What have I done to give back?”
She decided she would use the book The Way to Happiness by L. Ron Hubbard to get to the underlying cause of these personal and social dilemmas and help others have a better life. Distributing the book throughout the city, Bey has not only helped elevate moral values and bring the community together, her work has also been recognized as contributing to a significant drop in crime.
