REMARKABLE RESILIENCE: DEAR MATTER #2

I would like to share about a female figure I met in my line of work. From the first day I entered the workforce, I felt welcomed by her. Her gracious and approachable disposition made it easy for me to connect with her.

Throughout the one and a half years that I’ve known her, she’s stretched me to one of my furthest. Yet I found myself willing to work even harder solely because of the way she takes care of the people under her. It was through her leadership that I understood what it meant when people said “when you feel that you are truly cared for and valued, you’ll learn to enjoy the work you’re given and you won’t mind doing even more.”

 

HER INCLINATION IS ALWAYS TO HELP OTHERS WHEN SHE CAN. THE VALUE OF RESILIENCE IS ONE THAT SHE HAS, AND SHE HOLDS IT TRUE ACROSS ALL ASPECTS OF HER LIFE.

 

In the hours she spends outside of work, she gives her time and care to her family. What I admire about her is how she always manages to keep a smile on her face. She has such a selfless nature and she never turns anyone away, even though she might be busy or tied down with something else. Her inclination is always to help others when she can. The value of resilience is one that she has, and she holds it true across all aspects of her life. I feel that although life has its own challenges, she has made hers fulfilling – and this is one value which I hope to grow into.

PS * I am enjoying my Raka Raven Lounge Lunghi very much and hope to own another pair soon!

 

Best, Ling

 


 With everything going on in the world today, it’s a pulsing reminder that there is still a lot of room for change and progress, especially for women. But celebration coexists with struggle and now, more than ever, we want to celebrate the remarkable resilience of women, individuals who find the strength and passion to go on despite their circumstances.
