About the Event
Ms. Cynthia Usui will draw from her personal journey “from mother to management” in order to inspire others on how they can rebuild their careers. Born and raised in the Philippines to Chinese parents, Ms. Usui moved to Japan to study at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, where she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Japanese Language and Studies. After graduation, she worked in advertising but quit her job to focus on being a mother. She spent the next 25 years overseas as the wife of a Japanese diplomat. Upon returning to Tokyo, Ms. Usui landed her first job as a part-timer at a Members Club for expats at the age of 52, and moved up the ranks to executive levels in hospitality.
Ms. Usui will lend her insight, offer advice, and take us on a journey of perseverance and empowerment.
