Hi, I’m Ruoxiang Chau.
This is my blog. Thank you for stopping by.
I was born in Wenzhou, on the southeast coast of China. Life took me to Paris, where I grew up, studied and worked as a designer, a photographer, an executive assistant to the MD, a creative director, a managing partner and also a consultant in the Luxury Goods industry and the International Trade Development industry across Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
By the time I reached 29, I realised that it was high time to pursue my own dreams. So, I moved to London and later joined Médecins Sans Frontières, as a field administrator in South Sudan. After my return to Old Europe, I decided to tackle a more artistic path and dedicated a few years of my life to the non-profit sector by using documentary photography, visual arts and multimedia as a power of observation and expression.
Because of my personal story, I believe in the strength of our differences, uniqueness and complementarity. I also believe that there is a great outcome when we accept the existence of other paradigms and beliefs, and we combine our cultures and values in order to develop people and organisations in a more sustainable environment.
I am currently studying Chinese language, culture and civilisation in Shanghai, while researching on how new narratives can help people and communities find meaningfulness, develop themselves, seize opportunities and tackle challenges in a multicultural and globalised world at the Conservatoire National des Arts & Métiers in Paris.
About My Blog
I started this blog in June 2013, expecting nothing but getting better organised in my notes. While I was sharing my works, research and inspiration, I was soon surrounded by a great community of thinkers, philosophers, writers, poets, artists and lovers of all kinds.
To all of you: THANK YOU. Thank you for your presence. Thank you for your daily visits. Thank you for your silent reading and support. Thank you for your words. Thank you for exchanging ideas. And thank you for letting me discover your world. I am very grateful.
I hope you’ll find some answers to your quest to self-awareness, self-development and inner peace.
No matter what you do, I wish you to have fun and remember why you started first.
Thank you for stopping by and please, do not hesitate to come and say hi.
