SO WHAT IS THIS SITE ABOUT AGAIN?

Let’s clarify some terms, shall we?

  • Renaissance – literally meaning “rebirth” in French and is most commonly used in association with cultural awakening in the 14th century. I urge you to give rebirth to YOUR dreams, goals and drive and accept the various different passions
  • Expat – is a person temporarily or permanently residing, in a country other than that of their citizenship. Maybe you moved for a job, or school, followed your partner or just forgot to go home after an extended trip overseas
  • Career– surprisingly enough, a career IS NOT a job, rather an individual’s journey through learning, work and other aspects of life – it’s a process. I am here to make it a better process.
  • Makeover – the act or process of making changes to improve the appearance or effectiveness of someone or something. This one is about making over your LIFE as a thriving expat and owning your success.
  • Impact– a marked effect or influence. It can be used as a verb (to impact your career) or as noun (generating social impact) – as long as it’s YOUR WAY of making the world a better place through your work.
  • Growth – activities that improve awareness and identity, develop talents and potential, build human capital and facilitate employability, enhance quality of life and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations.

And this is what I set out to do!

ENOUGH ABOUT ME , HERE'S SOME MORE ABOUT ME
I’m a serial expat and even-more-serial career changer.

If we are going to be building a relationship, a couple of things you should know:
Languages I speak on a daily basis. Sometimes I forget to how pronounce my own name.
Different career paths that I tried (private tutor, government analyst, international organizations… tried it all)
Days that I kept up with my lawyer job
Kilos that I need to lose to "be happy"
hours spent banging my head against the wall wondering what I want to do when I grow up
Harry potter/ Lord of the ring books read + Stars wars movies watched
Hours spent in advanced physics class. Graduated first in my class – never touched it again
Countries visited to date. I’m sooo behind schedule…
Times that I was nominated to the “40 under 40” list in the field of public policy
life to live and you need to make the most impact with it!
WANT EVEN MORE ? HERE ARE 5 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME
  • I’m a wife of one (well it would be illegal otherwise, no?) hansom medical researcher and a mother of 2 super energetic boys.
  • I’m allergic to pepper. Kind of weird, right?
  • I’m a super curios international goal who doesn’t believe in finding your ONE passion (yes, even if I coach about career change… especially then!)
  • I can have ice-cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner for an entire week (yes I tried that… not a good idea!)
  • I’m Don Quixote wannabe, who wants to live in a world where all children are loved and cherished and the good guys always win!
