EW: As a global designer, what characteristic do you have that allows you to adapt so well?
CW: I really love learning about other people and cultures so I haven't had a hard time adapting, I've learned so much from the wonderful friends that I have made from all over the world. I guess determination is my underlying characteristic that has driven me to succeed professionally in the places that I've lived. It's challenging to move to a new city, let alone a new country and find resources and contacts. It took quite a bit of time to get my bearings in Dubai but by the time I moved, I had a whole collection of great tradespeople and a thriving business. It takes patience and a lot of trial and error.
