Who are you and what do you do?
Hi, I’m Stefanie Vallee. I’m an artist, a coach, an entrepreneur, also a speaker. I help people expressing themselves through their voices and creativity.
What are you passionate about and what motivates you?
I’m passionate about helping people connecting with their creative-self and finding their voice through public speaking. I am using a unique painting technique mix with some coaching tools that enable people to paint their first painting done without using a brush. It’s really fun. Also, On the public speaking side, I use unconventional techniques and games that enable people to connect, motivate and inspire others. I understand the importance for each individual to express themselves in an authentic way and the joy that it brings really makes me feel like I am doing something worthy to others. Beside work, I’m also passionate about white water kayaking. I am still competing at world level in that sport, and I love the challenge of it! My journey as an entrepreneur in China, and also a world class kayaker enables me to connect with people in a motivational way through public speaking and coaching.
How do you think coworking can help you to achieve your passion and purpose?
I think coworking is really important for me at this stage of my journey in Shanghai. I would even say that it is a key component to my success. Because I’ve been working on my own in my artist studio for so long, that now I think I need to have my ideas stimulated. I need some interaction with like-minded people, also on a business startup. So coworking here in Xindanwei is going to be something very interesting and will enjoy each moment of it.
