Jovelle Fernandez knows how it feels to be a fish out of water having navigated through various constraints because of being alienated. She helps us learn and understand about being away from our comfort zones.
Jovelle's story includes the unique experiences of a former woman expatriate and the challenges of living and working as a foreigner in academia, in a male-dominated society, and in the corporate world while juggling the demands of work and family as a wife and mother.
She shares stories from her new book, The Expat, that are funny, unbelievable, mind-boggling, and shocking, and she helps provide insight into navigating through constraints because of being alienated, even in your own country.
Tune in to explore more about why it's important to prioritize what matters most, to continue to define yourself, and to let go.
