Ally finds that understanding other people’s cultural backgrounds and developing multicultural communication skills are essential to creating a good working environment, and achieving good job performance. Working in a multi-cultural setting with different social dimensions is something Ally finds rewarding and fulfilling professionally, while expanding her horizons and cultural awareness, learning to adapt and compromise.
