Over the weekend, Zafigo’s founder, Marina Mahathir, had a chat with Kaori Sasaki on all things Olympics. From vaccine requirements to the logistics to (of course) the concerns surrounding hosting the games during a pandemic.
Sometimes, the most meaningful conversations begin with a simple “Hello!”
Welcome to Hello Zafigo, a series of online conversations with women from all walks of life from all over the world. Listen in while they share stories on life, culture, and a common love for travel! After all, life is a journey and realising our fullest potential makes it an adventure! We will be bringing you casual chats and even educational workshops covering various topics such as mental health, social impact, finance hacks, and everything else in between.
