I look forward to sharing my professional experiences at the early stages of my career; in doing so, I hope to share some insights that took me years to gain. Work life is demanding, and work-related stress can affect our performance and health. Having a successful career is not just about knowing your job well; a big part of it is how we cope with challenges and setbacks, how we maintain physical well-being and emotional balance.

Spotting Ms. Gan and Jesslyn at the dinner venue was not a difficult task; even in a relatively filled restaurant, the bright smiles and cheerful laughter from Ms. Gan and Jesslyn’s table in a corner immediately caught my attention.

Action speaks louder than words would be a good way to describe Michelle’s leadership and mentorship style. And that fits perfectly with Letitia, her mentee of 2 years who is also very much a hands-on person.
