Greetings! Saludos! 大家好!

I'm pursuing my Global MBA at ESSEC to expand my network in the luxury industry, build a stronger business skill set, and to pivot my career towards a path that marries business with sustainability. ESSEC, renowned for its strong ties to the industry and being located in Paris, the cradle of luxury, was the best school I could've possibly gotten into. Every day I get to learn from intelligent and fiercely passionate peers that hail from all industries in all corners of the world as well as wise professors like Denis Morisset who are incredibly accomplished in their fields. We also get to attend conferences and networking events that enable us to engage industry leaders up close. Every experience has been invaluable.

Prior to the MBA, I had co-launched British/Taiwanese luxury brand Grace Han in London. It was during my tenure at Grace Han that I rediscovered my dormant appreciation for craftsmanship and enduring quality and beauty, which encompasses what I believe luxury ultimately represents as well as its potential to lead in the sustainability realm. Of course, I went through a painstaking process of self-rediscovery and re-alignment of my goals before I was ready for an MBA and I’m happy to share more about my personal experiences to help you navigate your journey.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out, regardless of what you do or where you are in the world!
