Letter to Family
My folks named me Margeaux, a name they believed to be the French spelling of "Margot".
In case you were wondering, it's not. I didn't learn this however until my first trip to
France as an exchange student. While I was in the states people constantly would call me
"Marg-ucks", and then in France, it was "Mar-joe". Despite the misspelling and
mispronunciation of my name, I think it says a lot about myself; an attempt at a mélange
of cultures with a truly unique outcome.
At the core of my approach to life and therefore work is respect. I believe that there is
no unique way to do anything. I am therefore, open and anxious to learn new
perspectives, new rules, new social structures and gain new insights that will help me
assimilate into a new environment and a new culture. It has been my experience so far,
that by showing my respect and my willingness to learn that I have been welcomed and
accepted without exception.
Growing up with divorced parents, I quickly learned the importance of family and the
different ways it can be defined. To be referred to as family, I believe is the finest
compliment anyone can be given. To consider someone part of a family, is a connection I
believe, that is earned through trust and respect on both part. I look forward to earning
your family's trust and respect in the future
