GIRL TALK: Andrea DeCruz

Meeting Andrea DeCruz is like meeting celebrity royalty.

gba1There, I said it.

It’s true though. I mean, I’ve seen her on TV since I was a teenager. And I do recall she was one of the most popular actresses at the time.

So of course I was quite excited to meet her in person – she is so easy to talk to! She’s also always smiling, welcoming questions and very kindly obliged when I asked her for an interview at Galboss Asia.

Having moved on from her acting pursuits, Andrea now owns CINQ Studio at Scotts Square and is a Co-Founder of Galboss Asia.

In this interview, I ask her about:

  1. Her inspiration behind Galboss Asia; and
  2. What were her biggest business challenges and what she did to overcome them.

It really is a privilege to meet people like Andrea and learn from her. Besides her acting and business career, I think it’s amazing how she pulled through from her liver transplant operation all those years ago.* I suppose to me, it also made her more real.

By the way, a friend of mine will be undergoing the same operation to give her dad part of her liver for his liver transplant, and Andrea and her husband, Pierre, very kindly spent some time with them, sharing their experience.  I thought that was really great of them!

*For my friends who are not in the know, Andrea needed a liver transplant about 13 years ago and her then-fiancé now-husband, gave her part of his liver. It was the most romantic story ever to rock the headlines in Singapore for sure.
