CARLA

After a whirlwind romance of just a few months, Carla packed up her London life and followed her heart to Hong Kong. For her, “it was the best decision I have ever made” and since then she hasn’t looked back. She now works for one of Hong Kong’s coolest tech start-ups - AfterShip, helping major global brands improve customer experience. 

Her foray in to the tech industry began during her time at Oxford Brookes University, where she and her then-business partner founded an “edtech” mobile app, which was acquired last year. For now, Carla is happy to say her interests and hobbies blend in to her career. Working directly with eCommerce brands checks off two of her greatest passions: technology and shopping! 

Travelling is her biggest indulgence, and when not working Carla can be found on a beach, drinking “Aperols” with friends or working on her podcast (launching later this year).
