From a young age I have been exposed to different cultures and customs. When I moved from Hong Kong to the Netherlands as a child, a sense of belonging had never been so important to me. It has taught me what having a different starting position in life, religion and/or skin colour actually means. I still see this experience as my greatest gift in life. As an adult, a working mum in a senior position and having worked in many countries (Netherlands, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore), my past allows me to focus on the strengths in different cultures.
I’m very happy that Roots Inspire approached me to be a mentor. I believe that my experiences can be of great contribution in coaching others facing (cultural) challenges in different countries, organisations and positions.
