    Alfreda So, FWS

    Alfreda So, FWS
    This was a comprehensive course and I’ve learned a great deal which is valuable to my career.
    Alfreda So, FWS, Wine marketing professional in Hong Kong
    Other certifications: WSET level 3

    Congrats to Alfreda So, FWS for passing the French Wine Scholar exam with highest honors with AWSEC!

    About Alfreda So:

    ''My love of wine started during my college years in California where I had many opportunities to savor wine with my family and friends. I still remember my first visit to Napa Valley was amazing, and I was impressed by the distinctive wines I tasted in different wineries.

    I came back to Hong Kong after graduation and obtained WSET Level 2 with AWSEC. Then, I quit my job in the bank and got a Marketing post in the wine industry. I took WSET Level 3 the year after to further enhance my wine knowledge.

    I have been looking for improving my wine knowledge and I found FWS program well suited to my desire. This was a comprehensive course and I’ve learned a great deal which is valuable to my career. My next target will be the IWS. With the foundation from the FWS, I believe it will definitely help me in my future wine studies.

    I feel delighted that I can make use of my wine knowledge in both my work and daily life, and this allows me to keep my passion in wine. As a quote says, “If you can't figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.” — Bishop T.D. Jakes''
