In our unprecedented world, we often do not stop and think of the impacts of the ever changing societies and cultures surrounding us. Able Wanamakok, who was born in Hong Kong and who grew up in the US, shares her story of discovery and showing people how to truly understand themselves beneath the surface. Born in Hong Kong, she grew up in the U.S., so she is influenced by the two most industrious societies in today’s world. From the age of ten, her immigration to the States with her family affected how she saw herself, how she lived, how she behaved and the decisions she made in life. Through the conditionings of our environment, society and cultures, we develop into who are we as adults, but can we truly find ourselves in the outside world, or do we have to look within to truly understand who we are and our purpose? Join Able in her journey to finding your authentic self.
