Today we began interviewing Wipe Every Tear staff members. We started with 2016 PLU grad Lucy Capron, which was a great decision because what better/easier way to start than by having a conversation with your best friend. I had several conversations with Lucy when she was deciding to move to the Philippines, so it was incredible to hear her reflect on that time in her life, especially now that she has been living here for two months.
We also interviewed Lalyn Asuero, the woman in charge of Wipe Every Tear Thailand.
She has been with Wipe Every Tear since almost the very beginning, she had such unique insight as to why Wipe Every Tear is successful in the Philippines and why those same techniques did not work in Thailand (Wipe Every Tear just pulled out of Thailand).
We started interviewing Emily next but were not able to complete her interview because of a technological issue. Emily is our primary contact here in the Philippines and has helped us tremendously during our stay here, we love her!
