Tell us about your academic and professional background.
I went to the University of Central Lancashire where I got my Bachelors in International Business and my Master of Intercultural Business Communications in 2017. Whilst I was undergoing my bachelors degree, I worked for an Australian surf brand where I was handling the marketing, branding, and the creative (photoshoots, apparel design) aspects of the business.
Prior to joining lecocqassociate, I worked in the financial services industry for 2 years as an associate where I obtained my CISI Level 3 Certificate in Wealth & Investment Management and the United Arab Emirates Financial Rules and Regulation. I joined lecocqassociate in February 2020.
What do you consider to be your biggest professional achievement?
My biggest achievement in my professional life is that I organised and directed a number of photoshoots, which I found very fun.
What is the most impactful thing you have done?
The most impactful thing I have done happened back when I was in university, and my lecturer asked me to do a motivational speech in front of a lecture hall of undergraduates. Instead of speaking about my accomplishments, I spoke about all my failures and how they have made me the person I am today.
How many languages do you speak?
I speak English and Japanese fluently, and I also speak basic Ruski! (Russian)
What drives you?
I am driven by my desire of learning more about different topics, industries, and philosophies. Every time I learn something new, it brings me a strange joyful feeling. I can’t explain it!
Business aside, what do you enjoy doing when you are not in the office?
I am really into powerlifting. I’m not sure if it’s because of my ego of wanting to lift like a beast haha! Another thing that brings me joy :D
What is your secret talent?
I can eat 9 plates of food and 2 servings of dessert in one seating without feeling sick.
