Jackie eagerly embraces the challenges of supply chain – indeed, all kinds of challenges. It’s no wonder that she thinks her friends would describe her as independent, resourceful, and humorous.
“What motivates me is overcoming anything from a complex work task to a home project,” she says.
“There could be some insecurities in the beginning, but accepting the challenge gives me the opportunity to rediscover myself by knowing what I need to work on to improve my personal skills. Conquering tasks increases my confidence and helps me get through other difficulties.”
Powering through difficulties is something Jackie learned through the example set by her own mom.
“My mother has been my role model and is my best friend,” Jackie says. “She lost her parents at a young age but still grew up as an independent and well-educated woman. She balanced very well between family and career and was able to succeed in both. She never stopped learning, and she taught me that people should never stop improving themselves. She always says, ‘Knowledge is the best investment you can give yourself.’ She even took the CPA exam when she was in her 40s. She was my biggest supporter when I decided to study overseas. Now that I do not live in the same country with her and have not visited her and my father since 2019 due to COVID, I do miss them a lot!”
