LIVING IN SHANGHAI

1500X750 squarespace5.png

IN 2016, I WORKED MY ASSETS OFF TO DEVELOP A FEW
MARKETING SKILLS

I cold emailed a content marketing team, and offered to work for them for free to build their Instagram following for 2-weeks.
They said yes, and I proceeded to more than double their following. I then wrote an article about my how I accomplished this project and presented it to the top 5 companies I wanted to work with. 
In short, one was interested. 
I had 3-4 interviews in a week. 
They liked me. 
They hired me. 
And told me I had 3-weeks to get to Shanghai, China. 

I have since separated from that company, but still live in Shanghai, China. I love this town. 
And as a black female with a fro hawk (or blue hair and/or lipstick) living in a place where I stand out like a flamingo trying to blend in with a herd of elephants - I feel as if it's my duty to share my experience with you fine folks about my experiences here.

Yes, there are other black people - including strong black communities - here.
There are a LOT of western food restaurants here: Italian, Spanish, Indian, and even a Soul Food restaurant - and more!
No, I do not speak the language - except for about 10 words. But I still get around just fine. 

You can follow all my Shanghai adventures on my YouTube channel that I update...well, whenever I get the chance.
