Synopsis: Hilary Corna knew exactly what she was supposed to do as an American college graduate with a business degree: find a decent job, move to a city and settle down with the man she loved. But she was anything but a typical twenty-two-year-old college graduate. Against everyones advice, she purchased a one-way ticket to Singapore in hopes of starting her career in Asia. She left home with just one suitcase, a love for Asian culture, and a determination to succeed. What could have ended in failure turns into the greatest adventure of her life, complete with the challenges of working as the “one white face” of Toyota Motor Asia Pacific. Along with her new career came the thrills of traveling to exotic destinations, the pain of living twelve time zones away from loved ones, and the birth of new friendships across cultures. Over the next three years, Hilary studies kaizen, a business method and management style for problem solving, and applies it during her work with dealerships in the Philippines and India. She blossoms under the guidance of Japanese big bosses who develop from mentors into friends and father figures. With a conversational tone and brutal honesty, Hilary invites readers along on her journey of becoming a global citizen—a journey where she discovers the beauty of life and explores her own identity not as one white face, but as a member of humanity.
About the Author: Hilary is the author of One White Face, a Speaker, and former Kaizen leader for Toyota in Singapore who a Toyota executive once claimed, “has the power to earn the trust of gemba (frontline staff)".

Hilary studied at Kansai Gaidai University, graduated from Elon University with a BS in International Business, a BA in Asian/Pacific Studies and a minor in Japanese. She is a member of the Academy of International Business, actively involved with the National Speakers Association, and is a 2003 Coca Cola Scholar.
