Ivy, Shanghainese women have a long history of leadership. What about your family?
历史上上海女性总有着自己的领导力,说说你身边的趣事

I am quite lucky that I am a Shanghainese woman. In our local culture, woman is equal to man, and sometimes takes even a more dominating role. It is not unusual to find out that a woman is responsible for investment strategy and a man is doing all the housework. I think this is a great and women are born to have freedom to chase their own dreams.
我很幸运出生在上海,在我们的文化里,女性和男性是平等的,有时候甚至女性更为主导。你会经常看到一些家庭是女性在负责投资战略,男性负责家务。我觉得这是超好的,女性生来就应该有自由追求自己的梦想。

You are very curious person, why do you think it is important to continue to learn and to challenge yourself?
为什么持续学习和挑战自己很重要?

I want to explore the most of myself. My value is trying to experience good things as much as possible. Also as a young mother, I want to expand my knowledge while educating my baby.
我想要不断开拓自己。我的价值观是尽可能地去经历去感受所有好的东西。作为一名年轻的妈妈,我也想在教育自己小孩的同时不断提升自己。

What do you learn when you travel?
你旅游的时候学到了什么

Last month I went to Palau. It is an amazing place. I tried scuba diving and snorkelling. In addition to trying new activities, I enjoyed exploring local culture and people. Exposure to different cultures helps me think out the box. During my journey, I also had a chance to make new friends. I met a Shanghainese lady who worked as a a diving teacher; she has been teaching diving all over Asia. And I am already planning my next journey, probably Norway and Iceland.

上个月我去了次帕劳,那是个很美的地方。我在那里尝试了潜水和浮潜。除了尝试新活动,我很喜欢了解当地居民和文化。对于不同文化的了解有助于自己跳出自己的思维定式。在我的旅行中,我也遇到了一些有趣的新朋友。这次我认识了一个上海女生,她在帕劳做潜水教练,在之前她在亚洲其它地方边旅行边教潜水。我目前正在计划下一次旅游,可能是挪威和冰岛。

Why did you choose to come to Her Century?
你为什么来Her Century?

I want to socialise with more women, learn from then and get inspired. I have been always curious about why some women are very successfully in their profession, what kind of mind set they have. I would like to meet them in person, feel their charisma in person. Maybe one day I will write a book these encounters! I also need a mentor, who can see me from a different angle and bring me a new prospective.
 

我想认识更多的女性朋友,从她们那里得到鼓励。我经常很好奇为什么有一些女性在自己的领域特别成功,她们的想法和价值观是怎么样的。我想真真切切的去认识这样的人,感受她们身上的领袖气质。或许有一天我会写一本书关于这些优秀的女性!同时我也很希望有一个导师,从不同角度看我,给我一些向前的建议。
