'One Degree North of the Equator'


My Story

The sunny little island of Singapore is where I grew up - one degree north of the Equator; blink and you might miss it on the map! Upon graduation from university, I started my career first in banking and then later specialised in corporate insurance.
Several years ago I left behind the ever-changing city landscape of Singapore for the beauty of the French Riviera. Moving across continents has been an exciting and challenging experience, especially if you only have a handful of French phrases to fall back on. When I look back, this has been one of the best decisions ever made and I am glad to say my French has improved significantly ever since!
