“The most important thing that working at SY has taught me about myself is that there is no such thing as ‘limitation’. The goal is always achievable when I push beyond my limit.”

How was Japan in reality to what you had imagined before you arrived?

I had visited Osaka in 2014 so Japan's culture and environment were within my expectations. It was interesting to visit the places I went to before, to realize how fast and better the city had grown in such a short time.

How would you describe co-workers when you arrived?

Very intelligent and hard-working. Although my co-workers come from different parts of the world, there is no barrier between us both at work and outside work. Everyone is so friendly and helpful, together we work closely as a harmony team to achieve the best results for our clients.

What were the initial difficulties of adjusting to life in Osaka?

Rubbish sorting. It is amazing to know that there are so few rubbish bins on the street. I guess people tends to bring their own rubbish home, but the household rubbish recycle system in Japan is quite complicated, I am still trying to sort everything the right way.

Do you feel like you're having an impact directly on the clients that you work for?

Yes. I have learned that in order to provide the best service to the client, it is necessary to understand the clients' need and stand from the client's point of view to solve the problems and provide our strategy. It is always good to hear that the strategies we provided received positive outcomes.

When I am not at work, I am ...

traveling around Japan. In particular, I really enjoy collecting shuin/朱印 (seal stamp) from beautiful shrines and temples, as well as collecting station stamps from train stations, as each train station in Japan has their own special stamp design. I know there is still a long way to go!

What are the challenging or difficult aspects of your work?

The fast-paced work environment. Multi-tasking is a must in the office and at the same time, the quality of the work needs to be perfect.

I am looking forward to experience ...

many more aspects of Japan. I would like to watch Kohaku on New Year's Eve, climb Fujisan, visit Hokkaido in winter, and so much more.

What is the most important thing that working at SY has taught you about yourself?

There is no such thing as ‘limitation’. The goal is always achievable when I push my limit.

Can you describe a successful work assignment that was your proudest professional moment thus far?

It was when the first case which we proposed our strategy got granted. I felt that the efforts we put in were worthwhile and I also feel happy for the client.

What advice would you give to entry level recruits?

Be willing to learn and do not be afraid to ask questions, because questions help you to learn faster. Always be organized, it will greatly enhance your work quality and speed.
