JN – A Life Changing Experience

Terry Wong, Assistant Supervisor

For Terry Wong working at the JN Representative Office in Toronto, Canada has been a life changing experience.

“The JN context helped me to realise that work is more than the means to earn one's income; but, can also be the vehicle through which you can positively impact the lives of others,” she explained.

Miss Wong, an Assistant Supervisor, who has been working at the Representative Office for the past eight years, said JN has helped her to appreciate the significant impact that proper financial advice and guidance can make on the lives of the people you interact with.

“There are many customers who come in and don’t have any idea about what they need to ask about, or where they want to go financially. However, in working with them and guiding them over the years, you eventually note the changes in their savings and investment pattern. Many have achieved significant financial goals with the guidance and assistance that they receive,” Miss Wong said.

“This is the best part of my work; and it motivates me,” she added.

The mother of three boys, two teenagers and a 21-year-old said her strong Christian values; confidence in God’s Grace; and her love for her sons keep her going.

“I recall how they were as babies; and, now I can confidently say that I have given them an appreciation for what is right or wrong. And, I am positive that they can go forth into this world to make it a better place!” she said with pride.

When she’s not busy at work, or caring for her sons, Miss Wong enjoys a good kick-boxing class.

“As a fitness enthusiast, I enjoy 'working out' and staying in shape,” she disclosed.

Describing herself as being “open, compassionate and funny," Miss Wong explained that she loves to see the people around her living their best lives and being happy.

“One of my strengths is my ability to empathize with others," she maintained. "Hence, the need to: wear the shoes of the other man. And, therefore, I always make it my point of duty to bring joy and laughter wherever I go."

Born and raised in St. Andrew, Jamaica, prior to migrating to Canada several years ago, she said the warmth and "vibes" of the Jamaican people are among the things she misses the most about her country.

She also reminisced about the busy Half-Way-Tree area and the hustle and bustle of Kingston.

“Jamaica will always have a special place in my heart, no matter where I go,” she maintained.
