Aashliqah from Cape Town –

What is your story?
I am from Cape Town, I have grown up here. I have been working for this company for two years. I am working with Chinese people. I have learned their language, to be able to communicate with them. This is very lovely environment. Being around these people has changed my life completely. It was quite a challenge to learn the language, it took me a year. They have helped me so much. I am very close to them. They are a part of my life and my family.

What has changed in your life?
Their culture is very different from what we know in South Africa, they are very humble. It is humbling to be around them. They are very appreciative of the things they have, they are not people to be moody and they are not nasty. They are just very nice people. Everyday we learn things together. I am teaching them a bit of English, it is taking sometime because English is quite tricky for them.

On a personal level, how have you changed?
I have learned to appreciate things more. I am more humble, I am a better person.
