Consultant (Strategic Insights, APAC)

Growing up in a Cantonese-speaking household in Sydney, Alvina has always been a bit of language nerd. It all started when she taught herself to recognise the Chinese titles of her favourite Cantopop songs (for those in the know, we’re talking Twins and Miriam Yeung era), which spiralled into more intentional learning when she picked up Japanese in high school. Alvina has since taken intensive Chinese classes at Fudan University in Shanghai, and studied marketing taught in Japanese alongside local students at Waseda University in Tokyo. When she’s not scrolling through social media in other languages, you’ll catch her attempting to casually pick up Korean while lip-syncing K-Pop, doodling anime girls, playing Genshin Impact, baking, or finding/eating/photographing/editing food photos for her foodstagram. Fun fact: this foodie has over 1,000 pins on Google Maps around the world, so give her a shout if you’re hungry!
