A one-way ticket to the story of my life!

After my exchange studies in Shanghai 2007, I decided to take a one-way ticket to Beijing in 2008 and ended up staying in China for almost a decade. After 9 years in China, I spent 4 years in Japan – Tokyo and was transferred to Singapore in 2019. Growing up in Finland and Sweden has made me bilingual in both languages, on top of that I’m also fluent in mandarin and to some extent Japanese.

Mr Sebastian Nummelin is currently managing APAC for Probi, a Swedish company in researching and manufacturing probiotics.
