Sr. Business Analyst with a unique background
Quebec french is my first language. In 1976 when my father went to work in Haiti for what was the ancestor of SNC-Lavalin and at the time, I was only 4 so remaining in Canada wasn't an option.
There, my parents did not want me to go to Haitian school so I started kindergarten in an American Baptist school and had to figure it out and learn english via immersion. To this day, I think things worked out pretty well.
At the same time, I also picked up Haitian Creole and even though its a bit rusty, Spanish too. At age 13 I also had a mini-immersion in Algiers and this helped me update my French from Quebec to international standards as well as acquire basic Arabic...
I have relocated to Hong Kong, this is where I wish to continue both my career and life. To integrate here, I am now taking Cantonese classes and I am learning in the same (And most efficient) way as I learned English: by not having a choice but to use it.
Yes, I am looking for work here but I'm not just sitting idly and waiting for the phone to ring: I've registered my Russian Martial Art teaching business and looking to make Hong Kong the hub of this discipline in Asia.
The last thing that all this has been is easy. I believe that in life, nothing worthwhile is and as we say in French: "L'effort fait les forts" (Effort makes the strong).
That being said, I'm a "What you see is what you get" type of person. I also believe that integrity, enthusiasm, hard work, continuous learning and thinking outside the box are fundamental to one's work ethic and career growth.
I'm fervent not only about continuously improving the overall quality of my work but also of finding new ways to add value to it. I thrive for new challenges and to me, facing and overcoming difficulty equates to growth.
To put it simply: No pain, no gain.
