As part of our 'Faces behind the frog' blog post series, we talk to Farhana about her role as International Area Manager for Asia and what she misses about life in London.
Describe your role as an International area manager at Unifrog
My role is to introduce Unifrog to schools in Asia and help counselors and students at those schools get the most out of the platform. I'm from London but I'm based in Hong Kong so it's easy for schools in Asia to get personal Unifrog support whenever they need it.
What does a normal day look like?
It's a cliche but one of the best things about my role is that no two days are the same. I might be in the office training counselors on a video call, visiting a school to launch Unifrog to students, or at a conference meeting counselors from all over Asia. I also chat to my team regularly to bounce ideas off them - even though we're scattered around the world, everyone is really supportive.
What do you enjoy most about living and working abroad?
Before getting this job I'd never been to Asia so it's been amazing to explore new places on work trips and weekends - and try the food. My favourite trip so far has been to Vietnam, where I tried my first grilled frog!
Hong Kong is a really exciting place to live and I'm always learning new things about the city. My current challenge is to learn some more Cantonese so I can talk to taxi drivers.
What do you miss about home?
Nando's, my eyebrow lady, and complaining about the cold.
