Kasen Xia 夏晨
Kasen is from Suzhou and studied International Tourism and Hospitality in Switzerland. She works in the Modern Agricultural Development as a Director of Strategic Development. The business has about 500 employees with a net profit of RMB100 million. As a leading position in the company, she has been challenged for being a woman. She is young and is working hard to combine traditional agriculture with new technology. Kasen believes that after taking place in the VOW project, she can share her experiences to influence other young independent women who are being treated differently in the workplace and share the thought of not limiting themselves to just “feminine” industries. At the same time, she could expand her global views - take a look at British farms and agricultural enterprises. Kasen is a young, hardworking woman who learns from her mistakes and is not afraid to try new ideas.
