Mei-Lyn – Of Indian and Chinese descent, Mei-Lyn is a true Third Culture Adult. She was born in Canada, grew up outside Toronto and holds a British passport. Mei-Lyn’s childhood was God centred with family as the focus. Her parents instilled love, strong Christian values, and a sense of adventure which became her foundation for life. Mei-Lyn’s first overseas experience was in Madagascar while working in a leper colony as a microbiologist, and she opened a school to teach English to doctors. Medical outreach and education with Pfizer Canada launched her second career. While she was ready to “go out to the Congo to fight Ebola”, her high school classmate, now husband, asked her to marry her, getting her to reflect that perhaps “life isn’t just about me…” With that, she entered the world of international education and fell in love. Currently Mei-Lyn resides in South Korea with her husband and three kids. Making a difference in teaching and learning is how she contributes to the world. Balance is created for Mei-Lyn through Christ, CrossFit, Mindfulness, and Parenting.
