The following is modified from a speech given by Jane to an audience of global women entrepreneurs at the 2017 MyEO Women of EO Summit in Athens, Greece.
I am a strong woman, I always have been. I grew up in Washington, D.C. at a time when it was white kids, black kids and occasionally Chinese kids. I’m Korean American. And it was 1975, so I had to figure out how to survive in my world. I decided to become strong. My mom would say, “Jane, so strong on the outside, so soft on the inside.” Moms are always right.
