Postcards from far away

… are something my father brought me every time he arrived home after his long travels all over the world. He was a Korean sailor, travelling around the seven seas for 12 years. Through these postcards and their small impressions of other countries, people and languages, my curiosity for travelling began.

After completing my German studies, I travelled from Korea to Germany, realizing that the country familiar from my studies felt unexpectedly foreign to me. With a polite smile I tried rejecting things I would have been better off accepting.

But the unfamiliar becomes habit very quickly, and after a short while I caught myself greeting fellow Koreans not with a bow but by shaking their hand.

What I personally learned from this is:

People from different cultures
live and communicate very differently – but at the same time quite similar.

My life and work experience in multicultural environments enables me to effectively assist companies during the process of change and international expansion. I am convinced that intercultural communication allows people to think and act more creatively and freely. Yes, and it allows us to be different, so that values and experience may be transformed and lead to innovation as well as long-term success.
