    • Strengths- Focus on improving myself in a developing country- Respectful and accessible population- Daily surprises that make everyday exceptional- Interesting food experiences- Urban density- Possibility to live a dual life as both a “local” and “laoi” (foreigner)- Low violent crime rateExperience’s good points
    • Where Surrounded in redShanghai’s delimitation for expats In gray : Minhang district(new industrial area)- District where I lived and worked inA place where I could live my experienceto the fullest: far enough to the center tolive an “expats” life but close enough tohave a “Chinese-workaholic life”1rst solution: living in Minhang

    • What I gained: A life changing experience EvolutionWhen one does not know a countrys codes or have the “right information” andpeople to help, one needs to learn fast, the hard way and adapt quickly. Education and ExperienceDetails of daily life become enlightening and precious source of information.If shown respect, the Chinese population never fails to give a helping hand or a pieceof advice. As long as you have a smile on your face and are willing to learn, you aregiven a chance to prove yourself . NetworkingThe people I met were usually open minded and have lived worldwide. The great andsometimes awful circumstances created a special and unbreakable bond. Empathy and HumilityI had to think beyond my preconceived notions, further my understanding of theChinese culture and learn how to adapt to other viewpoints and workingstyles/methods. Appreciating HomeIt made me aware of my values and the little details I took for granted.
    • In ONE phraseThis experience proved to myself that I wascapable of many things as long as I was ready to:take initiative, fight for my ideas, adapt andkept an open mind.
