|1. What do you see as your primary work at this stage of your life?
My primary work is working in finance and operations.
|2. What role do you see as yours to play?
Given my background in finance and operations, I see my role as spearheading projects and managing budgets and stakeholders.
|3. What goals or aims do you have in regard to the above?
Though I see myself as working mostly in tech companies, I would like to move into the 'green' space (even if it is just climate tech, or climate-driven companies), but ideally for a nature-based design studio.
|4. Where do you feel your next arenas for personal growth are?
I am constantly striving for balance in my life - putting equal measures of energy and dedication into work, my relationships, health and self-care.
|5. And for professional growth?
I would like to grow my understanding of the regenerative framework, learn from indigenous practices, learn more about biomimicry (and try to develop to the best of my ability a technical understanding of it despite my lack of a biology background). I would also like learn about design thinking and applications.
|6. What have you invested in to get you where you are?
I've mostly invested in developing my skills in the realm of finance and data: becoming a CPA, learning various tools and SQL, etc.
|7. What fields of learning and which thinkers have been important in your life?
Productivity: Tim Ferriss
|8. Can you frame your philosophy or cosmology of life? What role(s) do humans play in it?
I'm very much influenced by my mother, who was a refugee from Vietnam. She was extremely frugal and didn't waste anything and taught me how everything is interconnected and to respect nature, and so I've always held a whole systems approach to life and the world. I see how everything is connected, and nothing can ever be considered in a vacuum. I see humans as carrying a great responsibility in this interconnection of things, which for the most part we have been quite good at ignoring, to our own (and everything else's) detriment.
