Claire [62期生（2019年秋）] [シンガポール]
I am Claire, and I work in the Fragrance and Flavours industry as an Account Manager. I’m very thankful for being selected to join you all as a participant in the upcoming 62nd IATSS Forum. Time flies as we’re in the midst of preparing for the seminars, presentations, performances, study tours, and many, many more activities lined up for us – I would also like to say a HUGE thank you to the team behind this forum as I am sure there is so much organization and preparation necessary!
As young professionals with a good balance of experience and passion to make a difference, the forum is a good opportunity for us to pull ourselves out of our work and other daily activities to think on a more national/regional/global scale about environmental sustainability issues that will affect us all.
Additionally, on a personal level, I’ve always believed (as cheesy as it may sound) that diversity is strength. I’ve worked with cross-functional teams filled with people coming from different cultural and religious backgrounds across the world, and there is always something new to learn and share from our differences. I’m really looking forward to our exchange of ideas as we bring our passion and energy to discuss issues relevant to all our communities in this modern age.
I look forward to meeting and befriending everyone in September! See you all soon. :)
