“It is about taking the best from both worlds, and in my case, I think with my education and perspectives, it created something unique that differentiates me from my colleagues in some ways.”
Jing Liu, BPC Instruments
“My ethnicity has played a role in my path. As an immigrant, I think I had to prove myself more and that helped me to achieve things that I’m very proud of and that only happened because I learned from a young age to fight harder. I would say I was determined and had tenacity. Being a woman with an ethnic background has made me work twice as hard.”
Nancy Shenouda, Founder of Tradesnest
“Being an immigrant brings you many advantages, including a certain open-mindedness that can allow you to bring a new perspective to your projects.”
Ning Li, Entrepreneur and Business Owner in Paris and London
