What inspires her storytelling journey for the next generation:

Throughout Shan Shan’s exploration of helping leaders navigate the corporate world, she has made a fascinating observation – lots of grown-ups with superhero job skills struggle to lead their teams. They’re like explorers without a map, trying to navigate through chaos and risking disaster with every step.

This observation sparks a desire within Shan Shan to provide young people with a head start in the realm of leadership. She firmly believes that anyone can become a leader, and she is on a mission to share the secrets of leadership with emerging leaders.

To fulfill this mission, Shan Shan has crafted The Belt of Chaos, an extraordinary young adult fantasy narrative—a riveting adventure that demystifies the art of leadership, unveiling the secrets of leading like a seasoned professional amid the unpredictable twists and turns of a fantastical world.
