“Coming from a diverse background, we bring a lot to the table. For me, growing up, jumping different cultural contexts is not challenging, it’s actually natural.

I think that adds a lot of value and it’s something that’s very personal, being able to look at things from someone else’s perspective, instinctually, is serving me well.”
