Dear reader, welcome to my blog! I’m CeCe and I write about the human experience on www.writinginsoysauce.com.
My grandma named me after Princess Sissi of Austria, a strong-willed girl determined to carve out her destiny in a world dominated by men and etiquette. I have some mighty shoes to fill.
I left an unfulfilling advertising job in NYC to look for a job I love. Now I teach English all over the world. 9 months in Quito, Ecuador taught me I can survive anything. Join me on my quest to become a better global citizen.
Onward to Seoul, South Korea!
Beijing born. Boston raised. NYC made. Global upgrades.
Mortality is a writer’s biggest deadline. Down the rabbit hole, we go!
Thanks to Jeff Jarvis, I was inspired to share a piece of my soul online.
We have forgotten how to be honest on social media and thus with ourselves. We do not live perfect, pristine lives. Pain, fear and struggle are unifying elements and I would like to share mine in order to create an honest, authentic connection with you.
My tiger parents had trouble accepting a daughter who hated math, but loved English.
Abuse was rampant in my household. At 29, I made the smartest decision of my life and went to therapy in Ecuador. I learned about co-dependence, a condition that develops when you grow up with any kind of abuse whether it’s physical, emotional, substance, or sexual.
Intelligence is knowing what you don’t know. Strength is knowing when to ask for help.
I love hearing from you, dear reader. Questions, comments, suggestions welcome! Connect with me on Facebook!
