Tan Whei Li has been in love with arts and crafts from an early, young age. She picked up henna drawing in 2014 with the intention to raise funds for an animal shelter, but she quickly discovered she enjoys henna drawing very much. Since then, she has volunteered in a few fundraising events that include:
- Raptor Watch by the Malaysian Nature Society
- Festival of Wings by the Malaysian Nature Society
- Fundraising event for H.O.P.E. in 2015
- Fundraising events for Save A Stray Malaysia
In 2015, she founded Uniquely Henna MY. Most of her designs are unconventional.
