Katherine was a high-flying executive in a tech company in ?? Singapore. As a bachelorette, she only had work and a very active social life to focus on. This is not to say that she wasn’t busy. If anything, she ran only six hours of sleep on average, rushed her lunch at work often to attend back-to-back meetings, and to drive global projects to completion. In 2016, she approached me to ask if there’s anything she can do for Giving is Social. I gave her a list of options. After that meeting, I didn’t hear from her for a long time.
Check out this #GenerosityStory interview I’ve had with Irene Catiter-Gutierrez, a corporate executive for Autodesk Singapore who’s made volunteering part of her lifestyle.
Irene was introduced to me by a friend in university in 2011. She happens to be working in Singapore too when I first met her. Instantly, she got drawn to the concept of what we do at Giving is Social—which is to inspire, inform and connect givers.
To this day, she is probably one of the the longest-time and strongest supporters of Giving is Social, and she’s a source of encouragement all the time!
Here’s part 2 of my interview with her for our #GenerosityStories.
