What was your first job, and how did it shape your life?
My first job was as an intern to the cost analyst at the former Westin hotel in Bangkok. After the three months’ internship, I became a full time employee at the hotel as their human resources coordinator. Working overseas for my first job showed me the need to learn fast, the importance of a social network when living overseas and how much more you learn outside of school!
What books are currently on your bedside table?
On becoming child wise by Gary Ezzo and Robert Bucknam; Monocle magazine and End of Watch by Stephen King.
WHAT WAS THE LAST PRESENT YOU GAVE SOMEONE?
A box of Bendaroos (flexible bending sticks) for my daughter
WHAT WAS THE LAST PRESENT YOU RECEIVED?
A beautiful tea cup from my colleague who just came back from Vietnam on vacation.
WHAT IS AN EXTRAORDINARY PLACE YOU HAVE RECENTLY TRAVELED TO?
Yangon. So much growth and opportunities in this emerging city in the land of Myanmar. This will be Southeast Asia’s next boomtown.
WHAT’S ONE THING MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I am pretty good at ping pong and basketball!
