Something people don’t really know about me:
That I’m Swedish. (laughs) People don’t really know that when they see me.
Why did you make the move here, and how has it been?
It’s to find my roots because my parents are from Singapore but I was born in Sweden. I grew up and went to school there. I’ve been here for 10 years, and I think it was easy for me to adapt because Singapore is quite Westernised and everyone knows English so the culture is not too different.
How’s Sweden like?
It’s nice, peaceful, and very relaxing; the people are very easygoing there. There’s a lot of nature and parks. Meatballs are also really good there—everyone says that! The best time to visit would be during winter, during Christmas time.
What’s one thing you feel people should know how to say in Swedish before going there?
Maybe ‘thank you’? It’s “tack”—just one word!
What inspires you to do what you do, day in and out?
It was my first module in school in university and it was a very fun class, thanks to my lecturer. I love what I do as a marketing manager; I find it really interesting.
Something I’ve learnt after all my years at work:
You need to have passion in what you do. That’s very important.
